Many local government entities subscribe to Front Porch Forum’s pilot in northwest Vermont. Hundreds of public officials are on board.
One municipality, a regional authority, used it this month to conduct a survey of the public and got about 300 people to complete their online questionnaire… about 1.5% of those who were asked. To the question — What’s your preferred way to hear news from us? — nearly half answered Front Porch Forum… outpacing other options, such as the newspaper. Of course, I’d expect a good response, given that they found these survey respondents through FPF. Regardless, glad to hear the results. And interested to see folks using FPF to survey Vermonters.
