Blogging Across Ohio Filed under: All Posts, Telecommunications, Keeping in Touch, Your Democracy — Paul Gillmor

I just sent out a press release unveiling my blog to anyone who hasn’t visited my website in a while. It turns out that I am one of only a handful of Members of Congress using blogs to communicate with their constituents and the only Ohioan using an official blog to outline the work of Congress.
Blogs are new to me. But I enjoy the chance to post stories and articles about the issues which matter to the district. Technology has come so far over the years and I want to ensure that each person in the district has every means possible to communicate with me and stay informed about the government.
The blog is a good compliment to the outreach my office does every year. As I have throughout my career, I will continue to stay in touch with the views of the district through my regular public meetings, plant tours, and by speaking with organizations across the Fifth District.
Politics is about people and I love talking directly with the district. If you don’t like speaking with people and telling them your views or how you plan to vote, you probably shouldn’t be in politics.
