Looking for contributors

As we round off August and head into September things should start firming up in local municipal races. I'm looking for a few more contributors for this blog. Not really looking for partisan postings from different camps, rather some extra eyes, ears and hands to report on different events, especially ones that might not get covered in the mainstream media.

As it stand now, it doesn't look like there is going to be a race for Mayor, which tends to have a negative effect on the overall campaign. Not as much coverage and a lower turnout. In this situation many candidates will have a hard time raising their profile and getting the word out about themselves and their platforms.

If you're interested in blogging or even emailing in reports, drop me a line at bluebloggingsoapbox@gmail.com .
