Are your local politicians using social media tools in their fall campaigns? Tell me about it

Hey there, I am working on a story about new media technologies and local politics. In the wake of the 2008 U.S. presidential campaign and exponential growth of social media sites like Facebook and Twitter, are your local politicians using new media technologies to engage constituents?

Do you follow a mayoral candidate’s tweets?

Are you a friend of a political candidate on Facebook?

I want to know your experience and what political candidates are doing near you. Tell me about it in the comments section of this post.



Chris Killian on Health Care Reform

Chris Killian, co-founder of Kalamazoo Single Payer Across the Nation, stopped by the Nonchalant Café today to discuss health care reform. With major legislation at stake, Killian talks about the need for reform now.

The conversation also previews the Rally for Health Care Reform set to take place in downtown Kalamazoo at Bronson from 4-5:30.
