MESSAGE FROM THE PUBLISHER
TO: Friends of www.allotsego.com, Hometown Oneonta and The Freeman’s Journal
By clicking on the link at the top of this page, you will have a chance to participate in a piece – albeit, a small piece – of county history.
Beginning with yesterday’s meeting of the Otsego County Board of Representatives, the board’s monthly proceedings will be videotaped and made available to the public via www.allotsego.com
The county representatives have been discussing the idea for several months now. Their sensible concerns – for instance, would viewers suspect censorship if any part of the meeting inadvertently wasn’t recorded? – made it clear that it would be better all-around if an independent entity would provide the service.
The three sister publications – our two newspapers, plus our website – seemed like the logical entities to pick up the challenge. An Oneonta videographer, Karen Sullins, is making the recording and posting it on our behalf, with expressions of support from many of the representatives.
We’re new to this, and I assume the concept will evolve. If we can come up with a cost-effective way to live-stream the proceedings in real time, we will do so.
Meanwhile, I welcome any feedback and advice that you, our readers, may have.
Best regards and happy viewing!
