Ask the GovExpert: First-Hand on Rhode Island Taking OpenGov Lead with Mike Trainor

I was in Rhode Island yesterday talking to the fantastic Governor Chafee’s team about public communications and open government. Governor Chafee was one of the first candidates in the nation to have an open government initiative (which even mentions using GovLoop to connect their employees) and one of the first governors to have a transition website. Below is an interview with Mike Trainor, Communications Director for Governor Chafee, on how Rhode Island is taking the lead on open government.

His question for GovLoopers:

Has anyone created a strategic plan to go from
traditional communications (mostly PR releases) to more
of a Gov 2.0, proactive 2-way communications strategy?

He’d love to see them – post your links in the comments.

Thanks again, Mike, for the interview.
