The Engaging Local Government Leaders (ELGL) membership organization is launching the first annual National #CityHallSelfie Day, taking place on Monday, August 15. ELGL is a professional local government organization that believes connecting people and stories in local government is the key to attracting the best and brightest to public service. So, why selfies in front of city hall?
It all began in 2014 when various municipal employees around the globe started snapping pictures of themselves in front of city and county buildings. What started as a fun way to show love for local government and their city halls became what is today an attempt to break the world record for most city hall selfies taken in one day. ELGL admits that they have no idea what the record number is, but they will attempt to break it anyway. On August 15th, participants of this momentous occasion can take a selfie in front of their local city hall and post it on any social media platform with the hashtag #cityhallselfie.
This record breaking event isn’t just for municipal employees either, residents are also getting involved. Glendale residents can join in the fun by visiting our own city hall at 613 E. Broadway and snapping a selfie.
