Know a blogging Mayor, Councillor, Police Chief, Fire Chief, Librarian or any other Municipal official I haven't thought of, who blogs?
Know anyone who blogs mainly about Municipal affairs in their area?
How about any campaign blogs or website that have RSS feeds for the upcoming Alberta Municipal Elections?
Drop me a line at firstname.lastname@example.org or in the comment section.
MUNIBlogs.com is a blog aggregator dedicated to Canadian Municipal affairs. Currently I've been able to find 25 blogging Municipal officials from 6 Provinces and 1 Territory. Still looking for bloggers from Saskatchewan, Quebec, Nova Scotia and Newfoundland and Labrador.
On the Municipal Related side (blogging citizens dedicated to municipal affairs) I've got 20 blogs from 3 Provinces. I've also recently started a special section for the upcoming Alberta Municipal Election this fall. Coming soon will be a Facebook link section and Municipal Facebook group.
If "all politics are local" it doesn't get much more local than Municipal politics. These bloggers are leading their peers in trying new forms of communication to reach out to their constitutents. In my mind, that deserves support and encouragement, no matter what your political stripe or beliefs are.
Is your City or Province represented?
