Jacob Moving Into Cyberspace

LA MESA -- County Supervisor Dianne Jacob has added a new tool to stay in touch with her constituents – social media.

Jacob, who represents District 2, is now active on Facebook and Twitter, in addition to putting out a print newsletter, The Jacob Journal, and maintaining a website – www.dianne.jacob.com.

“I’ve always valued my close contact with folks in my East County district,” said Jacob. “These online tools provide more ways to expand those ties, and to let my constituents know about the pressing issues facing our region and the rest of San Diego County.”

In her first few days on social media, she has already posted news about an award-winning rodeo champion from Ramona and plans for a skateboard park in Lakeside, along with photos from a recent get-together with residents of Julian. She considers the online outlets critical for passing on information during a crisis, such as a wildfire.

She used Twitter and Facebook last week to also announce that she had undergone a hip replacement at Sharp Grossmont Hospital in La Mesa. “A big THANK YOU to Dr. Peter Hanson and the incredible staff at the hospital,” she said. “All the staff did a phenomenal job! My physical therapist, Paul, said I did so well that they were calling me ‘Rock Star’!”

Those interested in following the supervisor on Twitter, a micro-blogging site, can go to @dianne_jacob. Or they can ask to “friend” her on Facebook at www.facebook.com/dianne.jacob.58 .
