Tom Brake today held another innovative surgery session over social media! To reach as many constituents as quickly and as efficiently as possible Tom Brake has utilised Facebook to respond rapidly to resident’s queries and concerns, providing immediate responses.
Tom Brake is holding these impromptu surgeries once a month in an attempt to try and reach more people in a way that is more convenient to them. Tom hopes to end the myth that politicians are hard to reach and distant from residents. These surgeries add to the normal advice surgeries he has for the last 18 years.
After the surgery Tom commented:
“Technology like Facebook provides an easy opportunity for people, particularly young people, who might not normally write a letter or call em to get in touch”
