Now that all of you have teached me how to use this blog, I decided to try another one in a different arena. I was recently asked by the mayor of my city to chair a citizen's commission on municipal budget and finance issues.
I suggested to my fellow volunteers that it might be useful to the commission members and the public to have a blog in which people could exchange views and stay up to date on the activities of the commission. They agreed and have already used the blog for a healthy exchange of views on several issues. So far, we have not heard much from the public, but I am confident that will pick up steam.
So, if you are interested, take a look and see if this kind of site might be useful to you in similar activities.
