Here I go where I have never gone before. I’ve been playing with computers for a long time and have heard about blogs, but this will be my first my first attempt at blogging.
The idea came to me when I was looking for a way to stay in touch with folks in Milam County, and to let them know what is going on inside Milam County on a regular and timely basis. I do a regular radio program on the local stations KMIL and KRXT, and, until recently, I wrote a weekly column on county business in the two local newspapers.
But, there’s this pesky election coming up ... and, since I will be opposed in the general election, the local papers wanted to be fair and not give me any “free” press they weren’t prepared to give my challenger. Therefore, my column will be on hold for the duration of the election.
However, this put me at a loss for a way to stay in touch with folks in the county. I have always believed in trying to keep the public aware of what is going on in county government. After all, I work for you and need to keep the bosses up to date.
Anyway, the point is, I will post a new blog on Milam County government at least on a weekly basis, maybe more often, if I can get my head around this new-fangled medium. If you are "tuning in" for the first time, please will let your friends know about my blog because I really mean it when I say I believe the people need to know what their government does in their name.
