But yesterday, the mayor was respectful in acknowledging his critics with this post:
June 28, 2011 Mayor Greg Fischer Status update
I've posted a request for clarification on whether the mayor is handling his own social media, as indicated by the "first person" in both posts. If it's a staffer, a little heads up here- there's an ethics issue with representing yourself as someone you are not. But overall, hey, I'm impressed you guys came around on this and am looking forward to more engagement from the office with ordinary citizens in the medium in which they want to communicate. Kudos.
And secondly, this is rich...Phillip M. Bailey with WFPL has broke the news that Embattled Councilwoman Green to host radio show. I'm kinda excited about this, civic issues in this town could use more attention. The program director's indicated that Green won't be discussing the allegations against her, which makes sense. Besides that "unknowingly"- excuse, we're all familiar with from a prior judge race and frankly it's boring.
I'm hoping Green keeps the show legit, keeps it positive, and really talks about issues, and includes guests outside her inner circle. Although, her inner circle isn't always wrong, either. Reverend Gerome Sutton's remarks at Tuesday night's Bridges Authority meeting were spot on.
Hey, enjoy your weekend. Get off the internet and go outside. I'm gonna now.
