So some of you have wondered what is up with the Marley vs. Darren Hill thing. Some of you think too much. Don’t read too much into it. I live in Ward 1, Marley lives in Ward 1, Hill is the councilor and incumbent in Ward 1…
There really isn’t much thinking at all about it. Hilary’s sister’s cat Nano is making a credible run for Mayor and Marley is joining the slate. In other words it was a late night joke that seemed funny at night but really isn’t right now.
My other point for doing this is to show how easy it is for anyone to do a personal page. It drove me crazy when I can’t find an elected officials website and when I call them on it, they always go, “well I need to get it redesigned” or some other excuse.
For most politicians, the reason I am on their website is that I need some information from them, like a phone number or a email address to contact them with. It means an About.me or similar page would do all of that for people really, really easily. You can even use your own domain name with it.
So if you are a prospective councilor, school board trustee, or any elected official, put one of these together and make it easier for people to find you. It takes 5 minutes and if you use the about.me url, it’s free.
