Thanks to the Daily Worcesteria crew who are running a live blog on this fine saturday morning from the City Council "retreat" at Tower Hill Botanical Gardens. The gem of the day is this comment from our esteemed mayor:
"blogs aren't worth paying attention to"
According to The Daily Wuss the council's thoughts on us "silly bloggahs" amounts to:
"a small group of people who aren't necessarily representative"
And if that is the way the sitting city council wants to think that is fine with me, it certainly makes it easier to decide where to cast my votes. The "silly bloggahs" should pull papers to run for council even if we don't return them with signatures. I would do it just to see them sweat a bit.
The bloggers aren't representative? Anyone with a computer and internet access can start a blog my friends, there is a pretty low barrier to entry.... You want to know what is not representative of this city? The faces sitting on the city council. That is what.
If they want to discredit the concerns of blogs and bloggers why should I believe they would want to follow thru on the concerns of any single resident who calls or emails their councilor with a concern? They are just one person right? If we are not worth paying attention to why are we brought up at almost every meeting as of late Ms. Lukes?
