Marietta's e-mail newsletter named best in the nation
The city of Marietta's e-mail newsletter was honored as the best local government electronic newsletter in America today in a national competition of government communications.
E-News, produced by Marietta's City Manager's Office, is a weekly summary of city news, calendar of events, notice of public meetings and city employment opportunities. It is e-mailed to subscribers in the community and city employees and covers community events, city services and redevelopment throughout Marietta.
Judges for the City-County Communications Marketing Association, a national organization of local government communications professionals, awarded the city of Marietta first place for its e-mail newsletter for the public. A dozen cities and counties of all sizes competed for the award, including the cities of Las Vegas, Nevada, and Gainesville, Florida.
The 19th annual Savvy awards program recognizes the most exceptional and innovative public communications and marketing projects in the country. Judges present the coveted Savvy awards to participants who best demonstrate extraordinary achievements that enhance citizen-government relationships.
Based in Washington, DC, the City-County Communications Marketing Association has 900 members from city and county governments in states across America.
