Menendez Launches New Official Website

Menendez Launches New Official Website

New menendez.senate.gov makes it easier for constituents to access services, get information about Menendez’s activities in the Senate

Washington - U.S. Senator Robert Menendez (D-NJ) today launched an updated and renovated official website - menendez.senate.gov - with the focus on making it easier for constituents to access services that the Senator's office offers. The website also includes revamped news features and multimedia capability, which makes it easier for constituents to get updates on Menendez's work in the Senate.

"We live in an increasingly digital world and New Jersey is a wired state, which is why it is so important to ensure that my constituents have easy online access to the variety of services that my office can provide," said Menendez. "From contacting me to express your opinion to requesting a flag to applying to a service academy and more, these services are easy to find and easy to navigate on the new site. I also believe the website should give New Jerseyans a front row seat to the work I'm doing in the Senate and in the state, and the upgrade to the news features and multimedia functions help provide it. One other new feature I'm especially proud of is the 'New Jersey Spotlight' section. It will not only focus attention on a different New Jersey town every so often, but it's also is a partnership with New Jersey residents - there's a link where they can nominate their own town to be spotlighted and can submit stories and photos describing where they live."

Highlights of the new menendez.senate.gov include:

• Easy to find, easy to use buttons to access constituent services

• A new, web-based system by which constituents can contact Senator Menendez's office for assistance, on a policy matter or to request a meeting

• Full multimedia capability, allowing easy access to video and audio of Menendez speeches and statements

• "New Jersey Spotlight" section provides a feature on a selected New Jersey town. Includes a link where New Jerseyans can nominate their town to be featured and send stories and photos about where they live

• Bilingual capability

• New interactive features include an opinion poll

• Easy access to Menendez's social networking pages (Twitter and Facebook) and YouTube Channel

• "Press kit" with downloadable high resolution photo and biographies.
