November 21, 2017 — Arlington County is just across the Potomac River, and in 2012, our proprietary CMS was not able to meet the high-tech demands of our content authors and our audience. WordPress “microsites” were popping up all over, funded by a purchase card and $10/month hosting. A small group convinced the Public Website sponsors to go with WordPress, and our main site, http://www.arlingtonva.us, went live in 2014.
