Local accountability

City Councilor Kevin Donoghue has "re-launched" his blog @ On it, he's posting news bits as well as his daily schedule, in order "to work for more transparency through posting up each of my appointments, both public meetings and one-on-one meetings." This reminds us of an unfortunately unpopular service we read about in Wired recently -- the Punch Clock Campaign to track members of Congress' schedules, administered by the Sunlight Foundation, which attempts to increase governmental transparency. (So far, only nine members have signed up.)
