Congressman Adam Smith’s (D-Wash.) newly redesigned Web site went live today at www.house.gov/adamsmith.
The site has been redesigned with the needs of constituents in mind and an effort was made to make it easy for residents of the Ninth district to reach Smith to share their thoughts and concerns. The site is meant to serve as a good source of information for constituents about what's going on in Congress — what Smith is working on for Washington’s Ninth District and the nation. Smith continues to make communication with residents of the Ninth District a top priority and the new Web site is part of his ongoing efforts to make communication easier and to encourage transparency in government.
While retaining the constituent favorite “Question of the Month,” the new site introduces new features such as an easy email link to contact Smith; a special section for young constituents including “A Day on Capitol Hill” — a walk-through of a typical day for Smith; easy and searchable access to bills in Congress Smith has worked on; pages devoted to issues that Smith is working on; and clear access to information on constituent services like flags, tours, casework and academy nominations. In just a few weeks, the site will also have audio clips from Smith that will change frequently to provide constituents with current “real-time” statements as issues develop.
Stop by the Web site and send the Congressman any feedback — www.house.gov/adamsmith.
