Liz Carter for Congress Goes Mobile with iPhone Application
Transparency in Congress – There’s a rep for that.
(ATLANTA) – Liz Carter announced today the launch of her new iPhone application, available at iTunes. This app will allow the public to access the Liz Carter for Congress campaign anytime, anywhere on the leading smartphone platform. The application showcases Liz’s campaign information, news, events, photos, videos, and allows her supporters to volunteer, contribute, and share information with their friends and followers using Twitter and Facebook. In addition to supporting the broadcast and viral sharing of information, the application will also allow an unprecedented level of feedback from the mobile community supporting real-time surveys and polls.
In honor of the launch, the Liz Carter for Congress campaign will be raffling off an iPod Touch at the Defending the American Dream Summit at the Cobb Galleria today. (http://www.americansforprosperity.org) Raffle tickets are available to attendees of the event.
“I am thrilled to be the first Congressional candidate in Georgia to launch an iPhone app,” announced Liz. “Everyone needs real transparency from Congress and this is the first step in delivering a solid plan to provide that transparency to the people.”
“We need to embrace ways to involve our constituents and drive down the cost and size of Government. This iPhone app is a piece of that puzzle. It’s part of my commitment to keep everyone informed about how I plan to get people back to work.”
Liz went on to explain that when elected, the 4th Congressional District will have a website that also provides access to the “people’s office.” When asked if the site would focus on her, she responded “Too many Congressional sites are all about the individual in office, not about the people they serve or the issues being discussed on the floor. Our site will serve as a vehicle to connect with the people of District 4, getting their feedback with the same polls and offering the same information available on the iPhone app. It’s time for this District to have a representation who truly listens to their constituents.”
The Liz Carter for Congress iPhone application is powered by technology and services provided by RaiseDigital and Purple Forge, the same companies responsible for California Senate Candidate Chuck Devore’s iPhone app. “Liz Carter is not a career politician, but a businesswoman who understands how this new technology will enhance her ability to communicate with Georgians and all Americans,” RaiseDigital’s Managing Director, Justin Hart, said. “Liz has really embraced this technology and we are happy to partner with Purple Forge to provide her campaign with yet another way to show her commitment to transparency.”
