Trying Something New

That seemed to be our theme this week as we Tweeted Tuesday's election results for the first time, the mayor recorded an episode of his show with a different format, and eight producers worked on their inaugural projects.

We'd been doing a lot, leading up to the presidential primary in Massachusetts, to educate voters and encourage participation in the electoral process.  It was only natural that we continue the process on election night by posting the returns on our website for all to see.  Because we've recently started Tweeting, it made sense to post updates on our feed to let people know where we were in the process.  If you follow us, you were notified when our staff member headed over to Greenfield High School to pick up the results, as soon as they returned to the office, who the key winners were, and that the full results were up.  We hope this made it easier for you to get the information you were looking for.  Keep checking our Elections 2012 page for all the latest information on our town election in June, state and national elections, and the vote related to the new GHS building.

Mayor Martin also wants to educate the public about the high school construction project so he changed the format for "Mayor's Memo" on Tuesday, when he recorded his first show of 2012.  Instead of answering individual questions the public had emailed him and then interviewing a department head, he answered many people's inquiries by inviting the chief architect for the new school building, Lee Dore of Dore & Whittier, and Greenfield's Finance Director Lane Kelly to make a presentation.  You can watch the video, which includes the latest floorplans, here.

Finally, we want to share about some other videos you'll soon be able to enjoy.  A raft of producers we just met were in here this week, working hard on fledgling shows covering a variety of topics:  speech & debate, homelessness, the army, jail, and health & wellness.  They're learning a lot and we are excited about having their content join our existing lineup on cable channel 15.  Keep checking back here, because we'll tell you more about them as they are completed and begin to air.
