Our erstwhile Barnstable blogger Bugsy is still waging his private war for the public improvement of his adopted town at his original site here where this weekend he introduced us to a vibrant new blog written in support of our local Fire-folks, see their blog here.
The above is called Barnstable Heros and it's mantra is "This Blog was set up so the Fire Fighters and Police Officers of the Town of Barnstable have a voice."
Here's what Bugys has to say about them:
There's a new blog in Town: Barnstable Heros
Ann Canedy has said her Fire Study Group will recommend to the Town Council that the Fire District Consolidation Study proceed. There will be a vote next month. There is no guarantee that the town will approve the study and if they do, it won't be cheap. I pity the poor Town Councilors that have to take on the issue. It won't be a walk in the park.
I have been impressed with how well organized and adaptive the Barnstable Firemen are. Even in such a relatively unknown space as the Barnstable blog-o-sphere they quickly organized themselves into a formidable online presence. They are well led. And, they have a keen understanding for how to sell their services to the town. I'm hopefully they stick with their site. So far, it looks promising...
