Kamenetz Addresses Public Directly Online

County executive using Youtube to update residents on storm recovery.

County Executive Kevin Kamenetz has taken to the Internet to provide an update on the county in the days after Hurricane Irene.

Late yesterday afternoon, the county executive posted a 2 minute video on Youtube that was taped in his office.

Kamenetz provides some updates on the number of county homes without power and steps the county is taking to provide non-potable water to some rural residents reliant on well water systems.

"We are committed to help BGE get this situation resolved as quickly as possible and we share in your frustration," Kamenetz said.

103 views to his video in 24 hours (2 of which are mine) is pathetic execution of public outreach. If he wasn't just "checking the box" as to what a County Executive should do, and really cared, he would have followed up his video with an email campaign, to all his constituents, and asked them to spread the word. But its not going to happen because HE DOESNT CARE and he knows it is missing substance. Its all show. Calmdown you are a mere sheep in the herd. He miscalculated the content of the message, its timing and its content- all because he is not invested in the issues that make our lives better. I believe he once was. I hope he finds the pair he lost. But right now, he has lost his way and praying on his sheep. 103.

Go Johnny go! Go Johnny go, go, go! That was the first thing I look at was the number of views. Let's see 103 from around 650,000 is, well you know what I mean.

A video is pretty useless when you don't have power to watch it. I'm not sure who is watching but I know it's not County Employees since You Tube is blocked.

Executive Kamenetz, while we are discussing your community outreach and concern for your constituents, next time you are on the phone with the BGE president (daily of late) will you please discuss how the two of you can stop BGE impersonators from conning and robbing our communities?

What about the polluted streams like Jennifer Branch and Jennifer Run? No action there--Only environmental variances to put impervious surfaces next to the stream for developers and 3 houses.
