WASHINGTON, D.C. - Congressman Alan Lowenthal has been awarded the prestigious ‘Gold Mouse Award’ by the Congressional Management Foundation (CMF) for having one of the best Congressional websites on Capitol Hill. The Congressman’s website, lowenthal.house.gov, was one of 12 ‘Gold Mouse’ awards handed out to Members of the House, and the only freshman website to win a Gold level award.

“I think of my website as a virtual office,” Congressman Lowenthal said. “It allows me to hear from my constituents, interact with them, and provide help and information, in some cases, much quicker than through my physical offices. It is one of the most critical tools at my disposal. I’m proud that CMF has recognized the hard-work that my office puts into keeping the website fresh, friendly, and functional. ”

The biennial Gold Mouse Awards “provide guidance to Members of Congress on using the Internet to enhance communication and promote citizen engagement by identifying best practices that can serve as models,” according to the foundation announcement.

The foundation is a nonpartisan, nonprofit organization focused on improving congressional operations and enhancing citizen engagement.

Bradford Fitch, CMF President and CEO praised the winners of the 113th Congress Gold Mouse Awards as "admirable examples of the true spirit of public service. These legislators not only improve their own standing with their constituents, they benefit the entire Congress. The winners of the CMF Gold Mouse Awards are to be congratulated by their constituents, applauded by advocates of good government, and emulated by congressional colleagues.”

Congressman Alan Lowenthal represents the cities of Long Beach, Lakewood, Signal Hill, Avalon, Los Alamitos, Rossmoor, Cypress, Westminster, Garden Grove, Buena Park, Anaheim, Midway City and Stanton in California’s 47th Congressional District. He can be followed on Facebook, Twitter, or his website.
