As a municipality of Roermond, how do you inform MPs just before they have to make an important decision about municipal reorganization? Answer: With a visual approach. Together with Sofco we made a flash presentation within a few weeks, with which we could explain all our arguments. The presentation was put on USB sticks by Sofco, so that we had an original and attractive way to reach the members of parliament. The information is offered to all members of parliament. Partly as a result of this approach, we have succeeded in reiterating the position of the municipality of Roermond in the subsequent personal discussions with the various political groups.
Why did we choose Sofco? We worked together with Maurice van Kessel in 2003 on setting up a new layout for www.roermond.nl. With this website we won the public award of the Webwijzer Award for government websites in that year. We therefore knew that Maurice would be well able to provide this presentation for us in the short term.
