Hayes Turns To OpenCDA.com

Apparently, newby County Clerk Cliff Hayes is leaning on OpenCDA.com to get the word out re: his moves to reorganize his office. I was surprised when I checked Mary & Bill's Web site to see that Hayes had sent it a press release that he said the "mainstream media" failed to run. Quoth the cover letter that went with the news release: "“We’re sending this out to you directly because the mainstream media has chosen to disseminate nothing on our division’s recent progress, and Cliff promised transparency during his campaign for this office.  We plan to issue press releases monthly.” Huckleberries Online didn't get the news release. Which means that the clerk's office considers this site less than mainstream -- or wasn't trying all that hard to get the message out. I won't promise that I'll run every news release that I get. But I won't/can't run it when I don't get it. (You can find Hayes' news release here.)

Question: What do you make of new County Clerk Cliff Hayes turning to OpenCDA to get his message out?
