Tokuda hosting Twitter Town Hall on appointed BOE (Jan. 7)

MEDIA RELEASE

On Friday, Jan. 07, Senate Education Committee Chairwoman Jill Tokuda (Kaneohe, Kailua & Enchanted Lake) will host a Twitter Town Hall, where she will take questions and comments regarding the upcoming implementation legislation for the appointed Board of Education utilizing this 140-character “micro-blog.”

Participants can tweet their questions and comments, and receive live answers via the senator’s Twitter account @jilltokuda and can view the senator’s replies by following the #aksjill hashtag.

WHEN: 11:30 a.m.-12:30 p.m., Friday Jan. 7
WHERE: http://twitter.com/; Username: @jilltokuda; Hashtag: #askjill

A Twitter Town Hall, sometimes referred to as a Twitterview, utilizes Twitter to produce an informal virtual public town hall. Friday’s Twitter event will pilot the use of social media to engage the public in the policy making process.

Voters in the 2010 General Election approved a constitutional amendment calling for an appointed, rather than elected, Board of Education.

The implementing legislation will specify how the board will be appointed by the governor.
