Wirral Council leader Jeff Green launches blog
Cllr Green becomes the first Merseyside council leader to start his own blog. In terms of engaging with the electorate this is clearly a great move.
He's launched the blog on the back of his trip to China to help Peel holdings secure investment for the multi-billion pound Wirral Waters scheme.
The challenge of course will be to keep going when he is forced to make unpopular decisions.
He told his readers in his first blog post that he is not a technophobe (he's got an iPhone and an iPad), but that blogging is a different matter.
He writes: "So why do I want to blog?ÃÂ Well, to be frank, the world (well, Wirral, at least) is changing so fast and people are now so busy, that the way we communicate and provide information to people has to change as well."
So congratulations it is to Cllr Green for stepping up to the keyboard. He's already posted five items on his blog, long may it continue. Click HERE to read the blog.
