Happy to have made the Sudbury Star! Here's an excerpt:
Presenza has interactive website
Ward 8 candidate Stefano Presenza has launched the first interactive website designed to answer the public’s campaign questions directly via video blog.
The video-blog format allows users to simply email a question to the Ward 8 candidate, to which he is willing to reply with a video of his answer, posted directly to the website page within 24 hrs.
The format has been designed "for those Internet users not so keen on social media, but still interested in knowing where the candidates stand,” Presenza said in a release. “Not everyone is comfortable setting up a Facebook account, and yet people want to know our thoughts on relevant issues.”
The website further allows users to continue sharing their comments and develop a thorough discussion.
Many of the candidates in this election have focussed on issues of integrity, transparency and accountability. Presenza feels this format will allow him to be transparent and accountable in his campaign priorities. “I would love to see this format adopted by everyone, especially the mayoral candidates," he said.
