Cllr 2.0

One of the things those of you who have been reading me for some time might remember is that when I was one I was quite passionate about councillors taking up the opportunities that blogging offers.

My [ahem] change of circumstance hasn’t diminished my conviction that blogging offers local politicians (and others who play a part in our civic life) chances to develop conversations with their communities, and increase their accountability for the decisions they take.

So when Shane asked me to be involved in a project we’ve eventually called Cllr 2.0 I didn’t have to think for too long before saying “yes”.

Inevitably there’s a blog which I’m contributing to.
