Did you catch Mayor Muoio during her Twitter “town hall”?


West Palm Beach Mayor Jeri Muoio took to Twitter Monday to hold her first Twitter “town hall.”

No topics were off limits, and all questions were answered. Topics included everything from development, to bike sharing programs, to Digital Domain.

Local media was in the Mayor’s office as she tweeted out her thoughts Monday.

Here’s the link to some local news coverage:

@jmuoio Was proper due diligence performed re Digital Domain WPB deal? #askmuoio
West Palm Beach @westpalmbch 5m
Yes, proper due diligence was performed. Attorneys were consulted, specialists reviewed finances, locals weighed in. #askmuoio @CAK561

What would you say is the biggest difference between your term as mayor and Mayor Frankel’s #askmuoio
Budgets are smaller and we have fewer personnel. Trying to do more with less.@aGuyonClematis #askmuoio
Big Star Moving $199 @bigstarmoving 4m
@westpalmbch doing less will not fix the economy, lets motivate Job creators to re-hire by providing gov biz loan’s or cash bonus #askmuoio

Brandon Schaad @brandonschaad 26s
#askmuoio Cities around the US, including SoFla, have implemented bike-sharing systems. Can you commit to exploring this concept for WPB?
West Palm Beach @westpalmbch 55s
Absolutely. Had a pilot bike sharing program during the Congress on New Urbanism. DDA is moving forward with this. @brandonschaad #askmuoio
West Palm Beach @westpalmbch 4m
What kind of a bike program would work best for you? And did you know we have a car share program too? @brandonschaad #askmuoio
Brandon Schaad @brandonschaad 1m
@westpalmbch Love the swipe credit card systems I’ve seen in Denver, Pompano, etc. Had no idea about car share program. #askmuoio

#askMuoio Where do you suggest I look for work as a RN? I cant find a job in NJ so I got my FL license. Not getting interviews there either.
West Palm Beach @westpalmbch 54s
@bridgid_RN I know that there is a big demand for RN’s. Have you tried the local hospitals? #askmuoio
32flavors&thenSome @bridgid_RN 29s
@westpalmbch I have. I’ve sent out about 60 applications/resumes. I will continue to try though. Thank you for responding!

aGuyonClematis @aGuyonClematis 8m
@CAK561 @jmuoio we will need a new radio system. My concern is that it is P25 standard compliant to be future proof. #askmuoio

West Palm Beach @westpalmbch 48s
@CAK561 Yes, we need a new radio system. We will look at all P25 options and Commission will decide.#askmuoio
