About that job hunt...
One thing I love about public relations is learning new information about things I already knew. Transportation is a perfect example. Since coming on board, I've learned about traffic patterns, bridges, funding sources, weather advisories, safe driving programs, and the connection between transportation and economic development. It's interesting stuff.
WXXV and WLOX to let people know about the campaign (and the new website: www.GoMDOT.com/DriveSmartMS). Getting back in the swing of things with media interviews felt great.
I also met and talk with Jay Hughes, House Rep from District 12. Great conversation. It's always refreshing when politicians speak openly and give honest opinions. We discussed #DriveSmartMS, the need for infrastructure funding, education, autism, and general Mississippi politics. Fun time. He's a heavy social media user, so we also discussed that.
Anyway, things are off to a great start at MDOT!
