Foxx launches new congressional website
New website features social media integration, streamlined navigation

WASHINGTON, D.C.—U.S. Representative Virginia Foxx (NC-05) today announced the launch of her new congressional web site at www.foxx.house.gov. The new site integrates social networking, up-to-date information about constituent services and background on legislation and votes in Congress.

“As more and more constituents interact with me through the web, it became clear that my website needed an update,” Foxx said. “The Internet is one of the best tools available for communicating with constituents and my new website uses a variety of technologies to keep constituents informed about the issues before Congress, including Twitter feeds, congressional videos and online legislative search tools.”

Web-design and communications experts at the non-partisan Congressional Management Foundation recently named Rep. Foxx’s web site one of the top ten in the House of Representatives. Foxx’s redesigned site builds on the success of her old website and introduces new user-friendly features like social media sharing and smoother site navigation.

“This new website is a one-stop-shop for constituents who need information about the federal government, or who want to know what is happening in Congress or who simply want to get in touch with me about the important issues facing North Carolinians,” Foxx said.

The new web site also includes tools to assist constituents in applying for federal grants, resolving issues with federal government agencies or securing a nomination to one of the five Service Academies. In addition, the site outlines the application process for students who wish to serve as congressional interns or pages.

Congresswoman Foxx today also reminded constituents to check out her congressional Twitter feed at www.twitter.com/VirginiaFoxx. Her Twitter feed is frequently updated with pictures from her daily activities, videos, links to the latest congressional news and other information. Nearly 3,500 other people have already discovered that it is one of the best ways to keep up-to-date with Congresswoman Foxx.
