New “UC Connected” Video on County Video Channel


Elizabeth, NJ-The Union County Board of Chosen Freeholders is pleased to present a new UC Connected video on the Video Channel.  April 1, 2012 marked the 100th anniversary of mosquito control in Union County.  Inspiration for the video came from a photograph exhibit documenting the 100 year history of Union County Bureau of Mosquito Control.

Produced by the Office of Public Information, UC Connected features videos that promote, highlight or introduce events, programs and services offered by the Freeholder Board.

“Anyone who visits the video channel will find content that is interesting and informative,” said Freeholder Chairman Alexander Mirabella.  “The mosquito control video in particular, not only highlights the bureaus history, but also emphasizes the important role residents’ play in keeping the mosquito population down in Union County.”

Last year, the Office of Public Information produced 21 UC Connected videos, which included highlights from the Union County Teen Arts Showcase, the formal Dedication of the new Fire Arms Training Facility, Union County’s immensely popular Mobile Shredding service and the kick-off of the Summer Arts Concert Series.

Additional Video Channel programming includes current and archived editions of Freeholder Forum and Vintage Views.  You will also find county relevant news stories, courtesy of News 12 and My 9 news.

The video page can be accessed through the “Video Channel” icon on the home page, or visit http://ucnj.org/videochannel/.
