Brian Seitz is a Microsoft employee who happens to be running for a seat on the Redmond City Council. I don't know anything about him, but if I lived in Redmond I'd definitely be following his blog. He updates it regularly, so if you read it you come away feeling like you have a good sense of who he is and what he's trying to accomplish. Brian gives immediate feedback about each event he attends, tells his side of the story when the press makes a mistake, and even posts Youtube outtakes of himself.
But here on Mercer Island, we've got nothing but ugly campaign signs and boring web sites. Patti Darling's site is an ugly single page that was apparently designed using the 1930 edition of Microsoft Word (slow!) Maureen Judge hasn't updated hers in over a month. Where's Mike Cero or Bruce Basset? Are they still running?
So far none of our candidates offer an easy way to keep up with how their campaigns are progressing. What's with that? Are they expecting me to do all their blogging for them?
