A commenter over at the Take Back Congress - New York blog, wrote in to say that I'm not giving a fair shake to Leon Koziol because, among other things, I emphasize the online portion of campaigning too much. That's rich, isn't it - someone coming to a political web site to write about how unimportant political web sites are.
Well, here's one example of why political web sites matter. I just found out about events that the Les Roberts campaign is having across the district over the next month or so, and can communicate that information to you right away. I can do that because Les Roberts has a campaign web site up. None of the other Democratic candidates do, so if a voter wants to find out about what those other candidates are up to, the voter has to track down a telephone number, and hope that they're lucky enough to get through.
Here's that information on the events planned for the Les Roberts campaign in the near future
