Finally some good news for our beloved county – it has recently been declared 2nd in a list of top 10 digital counties in the entire nation.

The award was given by the Center for Digital Government and the National Association of Counties(NACo) which identifies best practices and recognizes those counties that provide exemplary electronic service to their public.

Our neighboring Montgomery County came as first in the list of counties having populations of half a million or  more. Fairfax county came as 7th in the list.

The outgoing County executive Jack Johnson has reason to celebrate. He said: while remaining committed to technology services throughout county government, digital services to citizen were expanded providing more prevalent opportunities for citizen engagement.

” Prince George ’s County Government aggressively improving its ranking for three consecutive years, is evidence of our commitment in using technology to enhance government services and as a result assisted in providing a great quality of life for our citizens,” Johnson said.

The survey was underwritten by Hyland Software, developers of OnBase, Quest Software, Inc., Public Sector, CDW-G, Insight Public Sector, Symantec and Sprint.
