ELGL members Kent and Kirsten Wyatt trained a group of Daly City, CA employees last week on using social media in local government. It was a diverse group with staff from police, fire, city manager’s office, city attorney’s office, building officials, and more.

The training consisted of two parts: a review of Facebook and Twitter use in local government and a hands-on exercise in live tweeting.

Many thanks to Julie Underwood, Daly City assistant city manager for hosting the ELGL duo.
