In a state known for its prudent financial management, Utah OMB Executive Director Kristen Cox and her keep-it-simple approach to government have made a lasting...

NSFG - Not Safe for Government

Guest: The Honorable Greg Fischer, Mayor, City of Louisville, KY  Compassion. A decade ago, the word did not appear in cities’ strategic plans. That’s changing. Thanks to the pioneering work of Louisville, KY, compassion is becoming something of a civic, secular religion in a growing number of cities. In Louisville, compassion has become synonymous with a civic culture that values lifelong learning, the physical and mental health of city residents and is invested in nurturing a culture where residents are cared for and given a sense of hope. Our guest is the city’s 50th mayor...

NSFG - Not Safe for Government

Odelia Bergh from the Peachtree City Police Department (@PTCfirepolice) says sarcasm is helpful in connecting with an audience (and making a point) on social media. Her team uses it a lot and, perhaps not coincidently, team members have each other’s backs if things go wrong. As for humor, Bergh tells Paul they have a hard and fast rule: “Never post while still laughing. Ever.” Chelsea Stevens from Georgia Interactive (@GeorgiaGovTeam) told Dustin about the state’s efforts to refine its voice — “informative, fun, and friendly” when engaging the public on social media while keeping...

Delegates to the GovTech Social Unconference in Denver pitched and selected a wide ranging conversation about platforms - how Facebook Live video is being used to break news, how Nextdoor is deepening ties to the community for law enforcement,
and how public agencies are Snapchatting their way into the hearts and minds of 13-24 year olds, and how the occasional autocorrect error can endear you to your followers.

The City of Roanoke's Timothy Martin and Capt. Chris Hsiung of the Mountain View, CA, Police Department talk all about it all on this episode of GovTech Social.
