Pollard For America Blog
Seventh District Democratic candidate Randle Pollard has set up a blog to open up a dialogue with the district's voters to inform them about his candidacy and where he stands on the issues. "I believe transparency is key to good government, that's why any time I answer a policy question I will post the answer on my blog," Pollard writes in an e-mail to me. He's already provided answers I posed on where he stands on several issues important to Indianapolis' GLBT community, which you can read about here. His views on equality, marriage rights and the military's "Don't Ask, Don't Tell' regulations mirror those of the late Rep. Julia Carson. Blogging is an effective and inexpensive communication tool for candidates, particularly in a special election like this one where the time period for the election is so compressed, to reach out to voters.
On another note, party leaders agreed today to a date of Tuesday, March 11, 2008 for the special election. No Saturday election after all.
