Subject: [Stimulus] Cantor Announces Hearing, New Media Effort
First, for those that haven’t met me, let me introduce myself – I am Matt Lira and work on the Republican Whip Eric Cantor’s staff as the Director of New Media. One of Eric’s priorities this Congress is to open the doors of government to the people, and invite people to help shape the future of this country.
In that spirit, today we announced that Eric Cantor has invited top national experts and leaders to testify at a hearing next week to offer innovative ideas and solutions to help revitalize America’s economy. The hearing will take place next Thursday at 10am – more details to follow. http://republicanwhip.house.gov/blog.htm
In addition, the Whip office has created a page for citizens to leave their comments, concerns and questions they want addressed by the experts at the hearing. http://republicanwhip.house.gov/hearfromyou.htm
We are also encouraging people to submit video responses to a video on YouTube with their concerns, questions and comments. In other words, we are creating a seat at the hearing table for the American People. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rbegIEp5FGs
Now, this is where we need your help. We want to hear from you, your organization’s membership, your colleagues – anyone who wants to weigh in is welcome. We will be using the text and video responses during next week’s hearing. This is only a first step, but it is demonstrative of Eric Cantor’s commitment to modernizing the way the Republican Party works.
