CHARLOTTE, NC – Mayor Anthony Foxx launched a new City website designed to help citizens connect with the Office of the Mayor. The site simplifies the process for requesting meetings, ceremonial documents and proclamations. Additionally, it houses background information about the Mayor’s key policy initiatives and programs, including the Mayor’s Youth Employment Program. Archived news items and multimedia can be accessed as well.
Unique features include a multimedia gallery and the ability for visitors to request meetings and ceremonial documents using a survey tool. The multimedia gallery includes high resolution photos from last month’s delegation to China and video from the Mayor’s media briefings and monthly television show, The Point: with Mayor Foxx. The site also provides coverage of the Mayor’s remarks from the Oath of Office ceremony held on Monday, December 5.
