Chatter: Social Media and the ICT Elections

It ended with an election, but if you’ve been keeping up with the politics of the Islamic Center of Tucson over the last few months, you know the race to remove the center’s former board has been wild and dramatic.

  1. since im an internet convert i think its important to have a big web presence for the ICT posting all this election coverage has been wonderful.. i got the times wrong due to a rumor at Jummah. I will be sure to get my information for all events and planning from the mineret.. is this the best way?

    i dont want to miss anything important again! i got all the profiles from the mineret and the speedy results and pictures were wonderful..i want to thank the people involved at the mineret.. id like to meet you personally and thank you.. ( i was going to say shake your hand.. but no disrespect if youre a brother.. Islam is a new world to me and even the smallest things have to be relearned)

    thanks again and the pictures are really nice!
