Briley Makes Overture to Local Bloggers

I received a mass e-mail from mayoral candidate David Briley to local bloggers this afternoon, with his press-release announcement (which I will pass on later) and a promise to be as accessible to bloggers as he is to the mainstream media during his campaign.

That's a refreshing change of pace from what we've seen from the mayoral candidates so far, and it is an acknowledgement of the untapped social capital that can be accessed in the local community and at the netroots on behalf of the Briley campaign. It's a savvy move; I don't know that local bloggers are exactly tours de force, but blogging and live journaling are underused links between local communities and local campaigns.
