Use These Resources to Get Your Message Out

Empowering Your Community: A Call to Action

Do your residents truly grasp the significance of local government in their daily lives? Do they understand the critical role you play in their health, safety, and overall well-being? Very possibly, the answer is “no.”

It’s time to bridge the gap.

Local Government Week: A Spotlight on Your Impact

Mark your calendars! Local Government Week is just around the corner, running from April 8th to 14th. This annual event provides a unique opportunity to engage with your constituents, raise awareness, and foster appreciation for the essential work you do.

Unlocking the Toolkit: Your Communication Arsenal

To effectively convey your duties and responsibilities, we’ve curated a comprehensive Community Outreach Toolkit. Let’s explore what’s inside:

  1. Web Graphic: Capture attention with visually our appealing graphic to use on your website, social media, or newsletters.
  2. Sample News Release: Craft a compelling narrative about your community’s achievements. Add to the sample to share success stories, upcoming projects, and milestones. The ready-to-use template is a great start.
  3. Fact Sheets: Townships… your local community! Educate your residents on local governance, services, and decision-making processes with the cut/past fact sheets.
  4. Op-Ed: Take the stage! Write an opinion piece for local newspapers or online platforms. Share your vision, address challenges, and rally support for your community.

Spread the Word: Connect, Engage, and Amplify

Now is the perfect time to amplify your impact. Use these resources strategically during Local Government Week. Engage with your constituents, foster dialogue, and celebrate the collective achievements that shape your township.

Remember, if you don’t tell them, who will?

Together, let’s empower our community and build a stronger, more informed future.
