Cary, NC. - Rachel Lea Hunter, candidate for NC Supreme Court Associate Justice, announced the launch of her campaign's comprehensive web site on Monday. The web site, www.rachelforcourt.com, has garnered tremendous reviews from web development experts from throughout the United States.
The Rachel for Supreme Court campaign believes it to be one of the most accessible campaign web sites online today.
"We offer the voters an array of options when it comes to communicating with Rachel Lea Hunter and with the campaign staff," stated Shirley Maurizzio of Mirror Design Solutions ( www.mirrordesignsolutions.com ), who developed the web site. "And we have much more in store for the future!"
Voters can interact with the campaign on various platforms on the web site. These include: AOL Instant Messenger(TM), Yahoo Messenger(TM), MSN Messenger(TM), and a powerful live chat tool built into the web site. The live chat tool allows visitors to instantly ask questions or offer comments to the campaign directly on the web site. Campaign manager Cameron DeJong says this tool was a big hit in a previous race.
"I was amazed at the number of voters who took advantage of the live chat feature (in another race) on primary election day this year. I believe it is one of many essential tools to ensure that voters are being informed and are able to interact with campaigns and the actual candidate," said DeJong.
The web staff plans to have Rachel Lea Hunter conduct live chats on at least a weekly basis with any visitor who wishes to ask her questions about her candidacy. The candidate will also work to frequently update the campaign web blog, a technology that has taken off in political campaigns.
Additionally, voters can write letters to the editors of their local newspaper. The campaign currently lists over 50 newspaper choices for the visitors to submit letters.
