Fightin’ Joe Clarke: A Great Edmonton Mayor

Looks like today is the anniversary of a full-out brawl in Edmonton City Council chambers.

I have to take this opportunity to plug a podcast series produced for the 2010 election, where we got all of Edmonton’s great, and crazy, mayors together to talk about the issues.

Don’t mess with Fightin’ Joe Clarke.

Election Day 2010 Shout-Outs

Instead of firing off 4 or 5 tweets with #FollowFriday recommendations, I figured I could post all the good folks right here and just link to it. I’m nothing if not efficient.

Last year’s municipal election day (October 18, 2010) was the single-busiest day in the edmontonian history. I say that, not because I like to brag, but, because it means the most important issue for our audience wasn’t our goodbye, or something silly or viral, no, it was election day.

I guess I’ll brag a little, since it means we were right about people wanting local news and information.

Now, onto the accolades! Follow these people if you’re on Twitter (and even if you’re not, find a way to see what they’re up to) because they’re onto something:

Sally Poulsen – Producer, Director, Shooter, Editor, Writer, Genius – There’s nothing that Sally cannot do to create media.

Adam Rozenhart – Election Map mapper. And man about digital town.
