New “UC Connected” Videos on County Video Channel


Elizabeth, NJ- The Union County Board of Chosen Freeholders is pleased to present two new videos for 2012 on the Video Channel.  The “Union County Means Business”   vignette features highlights of the first of a series of networking breakfasts for Union County businesses.  The second story focuses on the collaborative efforts of the Human Services Department to reduce the homeless and near homeless populations within the county.

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.

“The addition of video content to our web site has proven to be a powerful tool,” said Freeholder Chairman Alexander Mirabella.  “We are very pleased to be able to offer our residents alternative ways to receive information.”

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/.
