Another Mesa Blog

There is a new blog that we'll be checking out over the next few months called "Mesa Watch." They are going to watch the government following the passage of the bonds and follow the development of the slum landlord law.

From their tone, it appears that it might be the same folks as the old Shame on Mesa crowd that mounted a campaign against the property tax a few years ago. However, in this case, it looks like they might have toned down the rhetoric a bit.

I think that government accountability is a good thing and I commend them for their effort to watch the activities of our local officials. With this new mayor and council, it appears that the public has placed more trust in their elected officials, so I don't know how well a "gotcha" blog is going to work. My recommendation to them is to make sure they take the time to report the facts.
