Single Mom Facebooks Council Bid

I'm not sure who Amber Copeland is. But OrangeTV posted a link to her new Facebook page: "Amber Copeland for Coeur d'Alene City Council." I appreciate her introduction to us on her site: "I am not a business owner. I am not on any commitees or a member of any organizations. I am not wealthy. I am not married or well connected. I am a single parent. I struggle to make ends meet. I want the best for my family and neighbors. I want the best for my community. I am a majority of the population. I am a representation of who the decisions made by city council affect. It is time for someone like me to be a part of those decisions. It is time to elect a citizen to city council who has been in the trenches, who knows what it is to drown. That is the kind of person who has learned what it takes to swim and I am that person." She was born on Halloween, and she (hearts) Ayn Rand's "Fountainhead." You can find much more info about her here. She's running for Seat No. 5 (now held by Councilman John Bruning).

Question: Can a City Council candidate effectively use social media in a campaign?
