Keynote: Media at the Intersection of Innovation & Local Government

Media and local government. From gentrification and natural disasters to housing policy and transportation – local government reporters across the country are responsible for being as connected to innovation as the subjects they cover. Reporters are writing about similar trends that affect local government, and in this keynote session we’ll learn from three journalists on the innovations they’re covering in towns, cities and counties. They’ll also share how we can can better work with the media to tell our local government stories.
