THE new Dewsbury MP has shown he’s switched on to modern technology.
Conservative Simon Reevell is leading the way in the digital democracy revolution by becoming one of the first MPs in the country to sign up to the free new ‘MyMP’ app.
It allows constituents with an iPhone to get closer to his work in the Dewsbury constituency by following the application.
Simon said: “This app will help those constituents who are embracing new technology to keep in touch with the work I do in the constituency, particularly the younger residents.
“Research shows that the public have an appetite for improved online engagement – a recent survey showed that 40% of people would like more opportunity to interact online with politicians and political parties, rising to 60% for 18-24 year olds.”
At the touch of a button, constituents across the Dewsbury constituency can now provide Simon with their views on local issues, email him their thoughts and read about what he has been doing, while keeping up to date with details of his latest surgeries.
