BUZZ Blog: Facebook group formed to support NorShor sale; another formed to oppose it
Peter Passi and Brandon Stahl cover issues related to the city of Duluth. Follow BUZZ on Twitter.
I think this is a first: a Facebook page has been set up to lobby the city council by encouraging an effort to send public emails to them. In this case, to support the NorShor purchase.
And it's working. By my count there have been a bajillion emails sent to the council, and because I get copies of all of them, my inbox has been flooded.
So far as I know, I've seen only one "don't do the deal!" email sent to the entire council. So if you're keeping score of email support it's:
"BUY IT!" : Gajillion,
"DON'T BUY IT!": 1
Ah the power of Facebook and social networking.
As an addendum, local podcaster Danny Golden created his own page.
