Communication professor says local politics have hit the Internet age

Tuesday, April 15, 2014

For the upcoming Trophy Club Town Council election, a group called Residents United for Trophy Club is hosting a series of candidate forums on its Facebook page, the Fort Worth Star-Telegram website reported in a Keller Citizen story that quoted Mark Tremayne, assistant professor in the UT Arlington Department of Communication. Tremayne said he’s not surprised. "At the federal level you see things like [President Barack] Obama having a Twitter town hall meeting and Q&A on Reddit, so the idea of candidates on social media interacting with voters is pretty common these days.” The story was also featured on the FindLaw site.
