Good Councillor blog

Here’s a good example of a Councillor blog – Councillor Andrew Burns’ Really Bad Blog.

Light, informative, conversational and campaigning. Here’s a good short post on how electoral systems effect the local link between Councillors and local residents. This is a good example of how all politicians should present themselves.

It’s been nominated for this years’ New Statesman New Media Awards, and it’s easily the best entry in the ‘Elected Representative’ award. It shows that you don’t need a site set up by your researchers (getting other people to do it for you diminishes it) and that all you need to do is offer people a rounded view of your personality.

Tragically, they haven't asked me to be a judge this year, so I can't swing it for him, but I hope he wins anyway.
