Tyler's Mayor Bass Launching 'Ask The Mayor' Web Page

Barbara Bass, Tyler's new mayor, has launched a webpage called 'Ask The Mayor' where the citizens of Tyler can come to ask her questions and see what types of questions others are asking her.

"Not only will citizens be able to have their own questions answered, but they will also be able to see what other citizens are asking," said City Communications Director Susan Guthrie.  "If one person has a question, it is likely that other people have the same question."

"One of my goals is to enhance communication with the community," said Mayor Bass.  "Over the next several months, we will be launching projects that will give citizens a chance to learn more about their municipal government."
