Running for election in 2010 is a lot different than it was in 2003 and 2006, notwithstanding the fact that I'm running for a higher post - Local AND Regional Councillor.
What makes this election different is that I've expanded my website, I'm LinkedIn, I have a FaceBook page and FaceBook Fan page (please register as a fan), I'm 'Twitter'ing and have a separate Blog page. This page here.
The newspapers don't deliver across Milton which leaves huge gaps in the information chain. And neither does Milton have its own radio or TV stations so the advantage of all these bits of Social Media is that it creates an avenue through which I am able to reach out into the community.
For several years, I've used my website and email list to keep people apprised of issues in ward 3. This blog and the other social media pieces will help me reach further into the Milton community - particularly the new north wards which consist of wards 2, 4, 3 & 5.
I invite you to visit my website, and send me any questions you might have.
