In one of the more weird examples of thrifty government, Connecticut Lt. Governor Kevin Sullivan has launched a blog, “Let’s Talk Connecticut” on Google’s free Blogger service, complete with a blogspot domain, saving Connecticut taxpayers probably about $30 to $50 a year in hosting fees and $7-9 in annual domain registration charges.
Sullivan is apparently very serious about this foray using the favorite blogging tool of spam blogs world wide according to Public CIO: “Blogging is a very focused way to encourage citizen input and deepen access to state government. More important, it’s one more way to share concerns and listen to the voices of Connecticut, ” said Sullivan.
And folks, it looks like he didn’t spend a cent setting it up either. Mayve the good citizens of Connecticut can have a fund raising drive so he can atleast own his own domain name.
