Nice work by several Virginia jurisdictions – Fairfax County, Chesterfield County, Loudoun County, Arlington County, Albemarle County, Montgomery County, Franklin County, York County – which were named as winners in Government Technology’s 2020 Digital Counties Survey, which “Recognizes Leaders in Use of Advanced Analytics, Digital Equity Initiatives, and COVID-19 Response.” As the Executive Director of the National Association of Counties explains, this is all about “maximizing the benefits of technology in serving our residents, especially during a time when technology has become even more instrumental in connecting people and places.” For instance, how many of us had ever used Zoom – or heck, even heard of it – prior to the COVID pandemic starting early this year? And now, the Virginia House of Delegates, and to a lesser extent the State Senate, are meeting via video technology. So yes, this stuff is every important, really crucial, to keeping government functioning, and also to keeping us all connected to and aware of what’s happening with our government.
