About Multimedia Politics
Multimedia Politics was established in 2010 to discuss the increasing emergence of social media and technology in politics. The site will focus on how social media is changing the way Members of Congress, in their congressional offices and during campaigns, are utilizing new technologies to communicate to their constituents. The site will also discuss new communications and social media technologies and their potential affects on politics.
About the Founder
My name is Greg Polgar. I have five years of professional experience combining traditional media methods and social media strategies to implement comprehensive marketing and communications initiatives.
I graduted from Wake Forest University and began my career in sports marketing, notably serving three years as the Director of Athletics Marketing for Ohio University. In 2009, I moved to the Washington D.C. area and served as a Political/Communications Assistant on Creigh Deeds governor campaign. Following the campaign, I served as a Communications Intern for Congressman Gerry Connolly.
Currently, I am working as an Account Executive for O’Keeffe & Company, a public relations firm in Alexandria, VA specializing in technological communications.
I am not registered to any political party though I typically vote Democratic. Despite my political leanings, both parties showcase positive and negative examples when it comes to expanding their messaging through technological channels and as such, this site’s content will be non-partisan. Readers are more than welcome to express their particular political views in the comments sections.
The views expressed on this site are entirely my own and do not represent the views of former employers, my current employer O’Keeffe & Company or its clients.
