Online Town Meeting in Utah
The State of Utah Legislature set up a blog to conduct an "online town meeting" for the traditional August visits. Over the years, the legislature has used the month of August to visit different places and functions. We are in day two of their 3-day visits which is supported by an online meeting where citizens can direct questions to the legislators. Not all questions are answered on the site itself, some are responded to in individual legislator blogs, such as that of Steve Urquhart, one of the leaders of the movement toward more open government. I am impressed by their efforts to do this and the number of legislators that have participated.
