City of La Cañada Flintridge Administrative Services Director Kevin Chun commented on the choice to involve Tripepi Smith, “We knew that we wanted to engage our residents through social media, but being a public agency we wanted to make sure we did it right. Tripepi Smith is one of the few firms that has the knowledge of local government space and marketing communication technologies – it made them the obvious choice.” Tripepi Smith has also executed other communication projects for the City including a communications assessment and quarterly newsletter execution.
