A blog on the MLA: why?

Tapping technology to connect with local politics can be one of the many ways to nurture healthy grassroot politics. Though, this alone will not deliver magical results.
One, it opens up a transparent, documented and public dialogue between people and their MLA.
Two, it provides space for the voices of people as well as the MLA.
Three, it opens up the dialogue that one person or a group wishes to have with the MLA. Individual phone calls and private e-mails restrict the issue only to the people involved. On the blog, it becomes public.
Four, hopefully this activity will encourage people as well as their representative to contribute to healthy democratic practices.
We welcome the people of this constituency to make this space vibrant.
We hope the posts and dialogue will be mature - we will, without assigning reasons, be constrained to remove unparliamentary posts.
