27 Legislators, One Blog.

By None:

All 27 members of the Democratic caucus of the Oregon House have agreed to blog together on a single blog. We believe this is the first legislative caucus in the country with a group blog.

Check it out: OregonHouseDemocrats.com

This is a big, big, big deal. It represents a tremendous opportunity for citizens to connect directly with Oregon's House Democrats - and have a two-way conversation with them about the future of the state.

Sure, they're in the minority, but that makes it all the more important.

Last I checked, there were only about 2-3 dozen elected officials blogging (with open comments) in the country. This just about doubles that number.

As you can tell, we're very excited to be part of this project. Our slogan: Internet strategy for people changing the world. Damn right.
