Moving to a New Format

Manager Update – February 28, 2013

Many of you have been following my Manager Updates on my Town Manager blog.  I enjoy connecting with you all and am always looking for new opportunities to interact, share and build new relationships.  In an effort to connect on a more personal level, and to align with our focus to engage citizens and staff through digital communications, my Manager Updates will be moving to a video format for the majority of the time, but there may be an occasional written update.

Our new series of video entries will be called “On the Job” and will highlight projects, meetings and accomplishments and will focus on my interactions with staff, out in our community and with our many partners.  Not only will this allow for an inside look at a day in the life of the Town Manager but this will allow me to showcase all of the great work we are doing together here in Gilbert.
You will get an opportunity to see me interact with staff, attend meetings, give updates on projects, and explain some of the different services we provide here at the town.
These “On the Job” video updates will still be posted on my Town Manager’s blog and on SPAdmin but will also be featured on our various social media channels, allowing us to reach and engage a much larger audience.
You can also watch our other recent videos featuring the launch of our first mobile applications contest, SPARK App League, and our new One-Stop-Shop in Development Services.  And please follow us, “like” us and connect with Gilbert as we continue our focus on being a leader in digital government.
– Patrick Banger, Town Manager
