WASHINGTON, DC – U.S. Congressman Harold “Hal” Rogers (KY-05) announced today that he has launched an updated congressional website that centers on constituent services. His official website, halrogers.house.gov, has been overhauled to make it easier for individuals in Kentucky’s 5th Congressional District to access information and contact him online.
“It is my privilege to serve the people of southern and eastern Kentucky and I value the opinions of every individual in the Fifth Congressional District,” said Rogers. “As such, I wanted to utilize the most recent technology to connect with constituents and provide the most up-to-date information. From my online office, to the interactive district map, I hope that families, students, entrepreneurs, seniors and local communities will find the website easy to use and full of helpful material.”
The upgraded website connects to Rogers’ official YouTube site and Facebook page. The new interactive district map allows individuals to explore what is happening in their county and provides contact information on how to get involved and make the community a better and safer place through PRIDE and Operation UNITE. The Media Center is a one-stop source for Rogers’ latest news- from photos to podcasts to press releases, this section of the website is designed to keep individuals up to date. Rogers also launched an e-newsletter feature today that allows people to see what is happening in Kentucky and Washington by simply opening their email.
Rogers has served Kentucky’s 5th Congressional District since 1981. With a focus on economic development, job creation, fighting illegal drugs and preserving Appalachia’s natural treasures, he has a reputation for listening to his constituents and fighting for the region he represents.
