As the municipal election heats up I am going to spend some time analyzing current City Councillor elections. I would love to focus 100% on all the good stuff I am coming across, however as I stumble on a few candidates who need serious help I will use it as an example of what not to do.
I want to start my election coverage with pointing out a Councillor Candidate who is doing something that all claim to do. This Candidate is Jesse Helmer Candidate who is running for Ward 4 in London Ontario. What he is doing is great is voter engagement. Every candidate with the corny slogan “your voice at city hall” claim they want to hear from voters and then turn around and do their own thing. Jesse Helmer has taken the voter engagement promise to the next level by incorporating crowdsourcing to his campaign.
Here is a brief video of what I am liking about Jesse’s web strategy:

If you have any suggestions for City Councillor election coverage send them my way. Good luck in your campaign.
Websters defines crowdsourcing as the practice of obtaining needed services, ideas, or content by soliciting contributions from a large group of people and especially from the online community rather than from traditional employees or suppliers.
