Elected officials and other public servants, as well as their departments, would do well to create and actively maintain a social media presence. The inability to easily reach them via such media as Facebook and Twitter is inexcusable in this day and age. Petaluma's Mayor David Glass has no presence that I can find, and the city of Petaluma doesn't seem to either. The Petaluma Police had a Twitter feed but they only post sporadically and never answer tweets I've directed at them. Senators Feinstein and Boxer also apparently maintain one-way lines of communication, from their august selves down to the lowly proles.

Come on people, get with the 21st century for christsakes. What you don't know will bite you in the ass sooner or later.
