For nearly six years Ward 3 Councilman Bob Jaffe has put out a weekly listserv to summarize Missoula City Council business, and it's become required reading for anyone interested in local issues. Why? Jaffe successfully spices up all the minutia with his own unfiltered commentary
and dry humor, making it as entertaining as it is informative. Few other local entities (hello, county commissioners
) offer such easy access to information and insight into at least one elected official's thought process
, as well as a user-friendly platform to suggest new ideas
Now, the whole thing's becoming a little more user friendly. In addition to maintaining the listserv, which appears weekly in your e-mail inbox, Jaffe has created a new blog with even more information. "The blog will serve as a supplement for when files need to be posted and it will also make it easier for folks who want access to the information without all the email," he writes.
