Grade the Mass State House

I hope all of you concerned readers and outraged tax payers will pass this blog address on to as many as you know, who actually care about what is going on at the State House. This is a State wide poll that will run all year long. http://grademastatehouse.blogspot.com

Jim did you set this up or is this some bipartisan thing? I think need to see more of these thing myself, if they get passed on to the right people.

Great idea but won't do much good unless you get this address out there to lots of people. Hope you have a plan to do that because this really could have some value in getting those at the State House to listen to us. I cast my votes, hope all the others who visit this blog will also.

Annon, it's our's. and it's as bi parartisan as any, if not more. No hidden agenda or name gathering. As with any other type of polling, it gets spread by anyone who cares enough. I'm responding to every web site I can to ge this out. It'll take a week to get going...

It's only out of frustration with our Reps did we do this. Karen has never answered an e mail, Pam is not answering, Deval has not at all.

Why bother? No matter what we say they are not going to listen. I just have given up any hope of MA ever being a decent place to live as far as fair representation goes. Sad commentary I know, but still the truth.

Nice way to see what people are thinking, but it is not going to do any good. Seems like a lot of work on your part for very little chance of results. If they gave a damm what we thought of them, they would not be doing what they are doing. They figure they are above the law, and certainly above caring about what their constituents think. If you only get a few hundred hits, it won’t sway them at all. Now, if you could figure out a way to get this address out to 10,000 people and get them to vote, then you might be on to something. But good luck with trying this. Will be interested to see what their response is.

I agree... it's futile at the moment, but to do nothing is just not my choice.

Let's see a month from now if it's notoriety has increased.

IS there anyone out there asking at all? Maybe a vehicle for those who don't usually speak up and feel they aren't being heard..

Nice idea but without a marketing method to get this address out there, it just won't get enough hits to impact the people we are voting on, but I do resect all the effort you are putting into getting this state back on track. This is a great tool if you can really get the public to visit and vote. Good luck

Good points all.... so 10,000 is my goal. There have been 71 votes since Wednesday, so my arithmetic skills show me that in a year, that number will be close to 9000, and maybe more if the State House and all those inhabits, continue on their wasteful, unethical, secretive ways. Nothing I've seen would indicate they will do nothing less.

Very interesting to see how many are not sure.... I must be reading the wrong newspapers.

It will take many people, passing the web address on... to make this work. And the fact that it's anomalous and fool proof makes me think some people who wouldn't, do this in the past, may want to now.
