The city of Waukesha continues it’s dominance of the Cheddarsphere in bloggers per capita. Even the Mayor is finally in on the act. However, you have to sign the contract to read the Mayor’s controversial words of wisdom:
Mayor’s Blog Disclaimer
Blog is short for weblog. A weblog is a journal (or newsletter) that is frequently updated and intended for general public consumption.
By clicking on the “I Agree” button below, I agree that I understand and am bound by the following conditions.
I Agree — I Disagree
Any opinions expressed on this web log (“blog”) are exclusively the personal opinions of its author, the Mayor of the City of Waukesha. Under no circumstances should the content of this blog be attributed to any person other that the author unless expressly stated otherwise. The opinions and ideas expressed herein do not necessarily reflect the position of the Waukesha Common Council or any other governmental unit of the City of Waukesha. It is in the nature of Web sites, which are constantly changing, that information published may be out of date. The author does not expressly warrant the accuracy of all statements made herein; readers should verify information gained from this blog before relying on it.
The author shall use this blog to convey certain information to the public. Although members of the public are welcome to send an email to the indicated email address, nothing displayed, stated or printed in this blog is intended nor should be interpreted to create a forum for use by all or part of the public for the expression of their ideas, either in general or as to particular topics. This blog shall convey information in a “one-way” fashion only-from the Mayor to the public.
In other words, you can’t fight City Hall. But think about how useful this disclaimer is. Whenever Mayor Nelson speaks, the audience should sign a disclaimer to the effect:
1) The information herein contained may no longer be accurate.
2) The Mayor’s opinion is solely his own.
3) All communication is strictly one way. He doesn’t want to hear from you.
Now, those of us who have lived under the rule of Nelson may think the above conditions a bit of a distortion, but it’s his disclaimer. Given his predecessor’s behavior, you can see how the wording of the disclaimer came to be.
The mayor’s first post is up, and it is bound to be controversial. An excerpt:
Hello to the Great City of Waukesha! If you haven’t been to the website www.janboree.org go there right now to see the fantastic activities happening this weekend.
If anyone gets too cold, I’m sure they’ll let Mayor Nelson know via the Waukesha Freeman Sound Off section.
