Candidate launches his campaign online
I got an email from a reader named Michael James, who told me he’s running for the Lincoln Airport Authority, and that I can learn more about him by checking out his website.
Turns out, he’s a fellow wordpresser! In other words, he uses the same blog machine that I use to create this blog.
On his website, he wrote a Q&A (that’s what journalists call a “question-and-answer” interview on himself, asking himself why he’s running, whether he supports “essential air service” and even admitting he won’t be crushed if he loses, because that would mean someone better than him won. Although let’s be honest, the best man does not always win. In politics, usually the most recognized name wins.)
On his website, he even helpfully posted a mug shot (that’s journalese for a photo of the candidate from the neck up — sort of like they take of jail inmates except in ties and smiles).
It’s a brave new web world — might as well get used to it! (http://votemichaeljames.wordpress.com/)
