City Commissioner Dan Bohl to Blog Local Government!

Madison City Commissioner Dan Bohl has taken up some civic blogging. Actually, Dan tells me he's been active for some time on various sports blogs, so he's familiar with the rough-and-tumble world of online commentary. Now he's ready to start blogging about city government. His first post on RealMadison.org discusses why he cast the sole vote in favor of changing the city electric bill Step-Up program from opt-in to opt-out. Commissioner Bohl says he was voting in alignment with the majority will expressed on the city's online poll and in the numerous comments from voters he talked with.

Interestingly, Commissioners Ericsson and Delzer were able to offer the same justification for their vote against changing the program. (Delzer said in Tuesday's MDL that two thirds of the people he talked to opposed the change; Ericsson said everyone he talked to opposed it.)

But hey, we have a real live city commissioner online! Yahoo! Talk about being "In Touch with the World!" (Oops, sorry—that's the old city slogan.) Head on over to RealMadison.org, leave Commissioner Bohl a comment, and make civic conversation blossom!

Now, let's see if we can get a school board member to start blogging....

  1. Glad Dan Bohl is blogging. He speaks for the people and is always out among the public, talking about issues. He also believes in education and supporting kids as a former teacher and coach.
