Congressman Mel Watt (12th District of North Carolina) made the following statement regarding the launch of his new official website:
"Today I announce the launch of my new and improved website. As a member of Congress, nothing is more important to me than communicating effectively with my constituents and serving their interests. This means making every effort to provide the best constituent services and the best and most complete and timely information about the issues that are most important to us in the 12th District. It also means communicating with constituents in the ways that are most comfortable and informative to them. Consequently, I have incorporated social media throughout the website so that it will be easier for me to interact with my constituents and to share content of interest to them and others. Be sure to like my Facebook page, follow me on Twitter (@MelWattNC12) and subscribe to my Youtube channel. To visit the new website go to http://watt.house.gov.
"I look forward to utilizing my new website and these social media to better serve and connect with my constituents in the 12th Congressional District."
