Ward 7, get your communication on

A number of Ward 7 residents, ANCs, and community activists have been talking on Twitter about improving communications with and among Ward 7 residents and stakeholders.   One of this merry band, Justin Lini, recently sent the following email to his ANC 7D colleagues.   With his permission, I am sharing the email:
Everyone knows its hard to get the word out about news and events impacting Ward 7. So, let's do something about it!

I've been working with Susie Cambria ( if you're not familiar with her blog) to build an online database of our ward's physical bulletin boards, online listservs and social media sites. This list will be available to the public and hopefully will be a resource to government and our community.

It looks like we're making good progress for the online sources (but you should make sure your neighborhood isn't left off), what we really need help with are places we can post flyers. For example many apartment buildings and some stores have bulletin boards that no one outside of that building would know about. Ideally we would have the board listed as well as a contact.

Perhaps we could also build a list of people who are interested in distributing flyers as well? The more resources the better.

Here's a link to the google document holding all of the information: Hk7Xkns/edit?usp=sharing

Justin A. Lini
Advisory Neighborhood Commissioner for Paradise and Parkside, (7D SMD 07)
Treasurer for Commission 7D
On Twitter at @NE_DC_11

We are collecting information in the following categories:

  • Community Websites/Blogs, Electronic Lists
  • SMD Email Lists and Websites
  • ANC Email Lists and Websites
  • Community Newsletters
  • Physical Distro Locations

There's also a tab in the Google sheet asking for feedback about Lini's idea about getting names of those willing to distribute flyers.   Share your thoughts in the tab titled "Thoughts about collecting names."

Finally, keep in mind this list requires regular attention so check back often to see what is new and to update info you may have contributed.
