Idaho Sen. Larry Craig has put out an op-ed piece about his website winning a third top award for congressional websites. Here’s his opening:
“Just a few days ago, the Congressional Management Foundation recognized the best websites in Congress and awarded my website, http://craig.senate.gov, a Silver Mouse award. Overall, the CMF ranked my website as the seventh best in the United States Senate. Special recognition was also given in the CMF report to a handful of congressional sites – mine included – that have consistently been recognized for excellence. The awards have been given four times, and mine has been selected three of those four times. I am one of just 11 members of Congress to have been chosen so often. I’m not alone in earning a Silver Mouse this year, however. Senator Mike Crapo received one for his website, too. It’s pretty remarkable for both senators from the same state to be so honored, and in that regard, Idahoans are fortunate.”
