Supervisor Cook Takes Part in Reddit AMA with GMU Students


March 4, 2013

Fairfax – Supervisor John C. Cook will participate in a Reddit “Ask Me Anything” (AMA) on The George Mason University “sub-reddit” Thursday, March 7, between 2:30 and 4:30.

Supervisor Cook is hoping to connect with George Mason University students and let them know they have a voice in Braddock District Affairs.

“Getting students to come to a traditional town hall isn’t easy. If I were them, I wouldn’t come either. Reddit gives us an opportunity to make it easier for them to connect with their local government.”

Reddit AMAs are online interviews, held between members of the Reddit community and an individual. Previous AMAs have been done with President Obama, Newark, N.J., Mayor Cory Booker, or other people of interest like astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson.

There will be no specific topic of discussion for the AMA.

“I want Mason students to get to know who I am, and what I can do for them. This AMA is one way to start that discussion. George Mason is an incredibly important part of Braddock District. GMU’s campus brings culture and energy to all residents, and I want students to know how much we value them as neighbors. ”
