May 2008 marked the one year anniversary of the Executive Mansion website, a major source of information from the Presidency both in Liberia and the rest of the world. The launch of the website has made it possible for the Office of the President to keep Liberians at home and abroad abreast of the President and Vice President's daily activities, domestic and international trips, policy objectives, successes and challenges.In commemoration of the 1st year anniversary of the website, the Ministry of State for Presidential Affairs/Public Affairs and Information Technology Department launched an Executive Mansion e-newsletter, an electronically transmitted review of the week. E-newsletters are transmitted every Friday, and are sent to government officials, local citizens, donor partners, Diaspora Liberians, and friends of Liberia. If you would like to subscribe to the e-newsletter, please e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org.Between May 2007 and December 2007, the Executive Mansion website received a total of 5,792,172 hits, and continues to receive 100s of new visitors daily! It has increasingly become the hub for government policy documents, feature stories about the Executive branch, press releases, photos, job announcements, and general information related to Liberiaâ€™s post-conflict recovery and reconstruction. I encourage you to check out the website and e-mail me if you'd like to receive the Executive Mansion weekly e-newsletter!
