State Delegate Blogs?

Delegate Saqib Ali has a blog. If you read leftyblogs, you have probably seen it. I think its totally awesome.

What Delegate Ali has done is different than a candidate website. He simply got a blogspot site and hooked into Maryland leftyblogs. Even if updates are sporadic, he is now in direct communication with activist democrats all over the state.

I would like other Maryland Delegates to follow suit. I have emailed my State Delegates and told them how they can get their own blog and sign up for leftyblogs to get distribution. Feel free to do the same for your Delegates. I will post updates as they happen (if any happen at all).

Andrew and fellow bloggers,

Thank you for your kind words.

I represent Maryland's 39th Legislative District, which encompasses Montgomery Village, Gaithersburg, Germantown, Washington Grove, and North Potomac.

I agree with you completely that state legislators need to come up with more creative ways to interact and communicate with their constituents, and I think a blog is a perfect way to do that.

I encourage you to share with me your thoughts on important issues. To get in contact with me, please email me at delegate@saqibali.org or call my office at 410-858-3021.

Thanks again!
