County and City Officials Adopting Town Hall Meeting Over Phone

Those in the halls of Congress know the benefits of conducting town hall meetings over the phone.  It's become an important part of citizen outreach programs that enable the Representatives and Senators to speak directly with the people.  Usually, in the real world, Washington, DC, is the place that adopts cutting edge technology last, but in this case it was first.  Now, the idea of engaging the public in virtual town hall meetings on the local level is catching on, and more and more state representatives, county and city officials are adopting this amazing technology to stay in touch and find out what people are thinking and saying about the issues of the day.
