Kaine Goes YouTube
Gov. Timothy M. Kaine (D) announced today that he had created his own YouTube channel on the popular online video sharing site that allows people to watch and share videos.
The channel, www.youtube.com/vagovernor, features video clips of public service announcements, speeches and public forums with Kaine.
"I am pleased to join the Virginia government community of YouTube channels," Kaine said in statement. "The use of new media to deliver information online is vital to engage citizens in the process of government."
Virginia was among the first states to launch a YouTube channel. Kaine's channel is 25th Virginia government entity offering residents access to the government through the state's channel on YouTube, www.youtube.com/virginiagovernment.
Other participants include state agencies, localities including Fairfax and colleges and universities.
"Our goal is to provide full citizen access to Virginia government through every possible means. Free access to government videos online improves our ability to meet this goal," said Aneesh Chopra, Virginia Secretary of Technology. "Partnerships between our many service-oriented state entities are also very important to us, and the breadth of this initiative is a significant benefit to the Commonwealth."
