Congressman Mike Rogers announced the launch of his new Congressional website today, saying he hoped Third District constituents find the updated site easier to navigate and more informative.
“With everything available on the internet, I hope this new website will be a place folks will come for news, constituent services and information,” Rogers said. “The site was created to be more user-friendly, so I want folks to let me, or a member of my staff know how we can further improve it.”
Rogers said the website has several new features to allow constituents to sign up for his eNewsletter and “Mornings with Mike” events in addition to linking to his social media and the House Floor schedule.
“Even when back in D.C. voting, I always want to be as accessible as I can to the folks of East Alabama. I hope this new website will put my office at your fingertips,” Rogers added.
Rogers serves as Ranking Member of the House Committee on Homeland Security and is a senior member of the House Armed Services Committee.
