Twitter = Transparency at LFUCG

Twitter = Transparency at LFUCG


Toward the goal of improving transparency in local government, Ace asks all Urban County Council Members – and the Mayor – to maintain Twitter accounts.

They don’t have to tweet what they eat, or any stalker-friendly minute-by-minute whereabouts — just the stuff their constituents have a right to know: how they’re voting; IF they’re voting; and how they’re spending.

Email your Council Member today ( and ask for transparency via Twitter.

And more are signing on everyday. See you there.


  1. I also suggest every Councilperson maintain a blog.

    Dr. Lee Todd has a blog, updated weekly. Sylvia Lovely has a blog, UK Athletics blogs now, and of course President Obama’s White House blogs.

    The main misconception is that it will require MORE time, but in fact, it will help reduce a lot of confusion, as you will be speaking directly to the public, thereby saving a lot of time and hassle, on the back end.
