(Northfield) - Senator Jim Whelan today announced that radio personality Barbara Altman from WOND AM will host Senator Whelan's first-ever "Twitter Town Hall" meeting on Monday, July 9.
"I am very excited that Barbara has volunteered her time and expertise as a media personality to host this unique town hall event," said Senator Whelan. "The 'Twitter Town Hall' will be a fun and convenient way for my constituents to engage me on the issues that matter most to Atlantic County residents. I look forward to a thoughtful dialogue as we 'crowd-source' new ideas for legislation or help our constituents navigate the sometimes confusing bureaucracy of State government. At the end of the day, this is about creating a new avenue of communication for residents and their elected representatives."
