New blog from New York City Council speaker Christine Quinn

These are banner days for the New York City government when it comes to blogging. Yesterday, I posted about the city granting press credentials to bloggers (granted after they had filed a lawsuit) and today comes this from the NY Times:

...Ms. Gotbaum [Betsy Gotbaum, New York City’s public advocate] posted an item taking note of a new blog, the Red Room Blog, by the City Council speaker, Christine C. Quinn. The blog takes its name from the ceremonial ground-floor room in the east wing of City Hall, where Ms. Quinn makes official announcements, often before the Council meets in its ornate chamber upstairs.

Read Ms. Gotbaum's views on blogging and government officials. Hopefully, it will come to pass.
