The DOT is communicating again

I was glad to see my blog post on the underperforming communications office at the Rhode Island Department of Transportation get so much attention, and relieved to learn that other reporters were experiencing similar problems, but my ultimate goal in finally going public was to force some change at the DOT.

It appears we’ve made some progress.

Reporters and editors here at The Breeze have made several requests for information over the past few days, and Rose Jones has forwarded each of them to one of her very able and responsive staff members.

After emailing Jones with a question early Monday morning, she wrote back promptly that Charles St. Martin would be handling my request. Since that response, I’ve received five emails and a phone call from St. Martin addressing my questions.

That’s how it’s supposed to work.
