Legislative Update

Each house has also released its deadlines related to bill introduction and crossover. “Crossover” is a requirement that a bill must pass at least on house by a date certain, May 7 this year, in order to be eligible for consideration by the other house. The budget is not subject to crossover. List of key deadlines

February is Teen Dating Violence Awareness Month

One in three young people in the United States experience abuse by a dating partner. In an average Charlotte-Mecklenburg high school classroom of 30, that’s approximately 10 students in each class.

To make people more aware of this problem, February has been designated as Teen Dating Violence Awareness Month. Please join me in promoting respect and healthy relationships at a series of events scheduled over the next few weeks, including:

  • Tuesday, Feb. 3: Teen Dating Violence Awareness Month Proclamation at the Board of County Commissioners meeting
  • Friday, Feb. 6: Come to the Forward 4 Love Pep Rally from 5-7 p.m. at the Grady Cole Center in Uptown Charlotte
  • February 9 – 13: Respect Week
  • Tuesday, Feb. 10: Wear Orange Day
  • Friday, Feb. 13: National Respect Announcement

I am pleased to announce that Mecklenburg County’s official Twitter site, @MeckCounty, now has more than 20,000 followers, making it our most active social media channel.

Over the past five years, we have worked to build a strong presence in social media to help us quickly communicate important information with residents and employees.

To build on this momentum and become more strategic in our social media activities and direction, Public Information is hiring a Social Media Coordinator to specifically concentrate on those communication channels.

In addition to Twitter, we have established accounts on Facebook, YouTube, Flickr, Instagram and Google+.
