My first post for CQRollCall’s new Connectivity blog is up, so please take a look! Editor Chris Nehls asked five questions about Epolitics.com, the communications environment we all work and how it’s changing, social media advocacy and more, and I had a great time exploring some ideas that have been on my mind for a long time. How does three years working for a Texas state legislator affect the way you view politics? A lot — particularly in terms how you think about the ways power can express itself. How and why did my boss kill every bill a particular legislator had one day, and what were the results? Read the piece to find out.
My thanks go out to our old friend Alan Rosenblatt for connecting me with Connectivity in the first place. It’s a great site; check it out.
