“Finally, I was a bit perplexed by emails and calls asking about the “Good for Good” campaign, promoting Charleston poet, entrepreneur and social media strategist Crystal Good as “social media senator” for the state. (Her victory party was Thursday evening.)
While I’m equally put off by performance art and by social media, Good’s mission statement seems to be sound: That, as the low turnout in the last election showed, there is a majority of West Virginians who care about the state, but don’t believe they can make a difference through the political process.
Good’s platform is to create a digital commons where people can express their ideas and positions on issues facing the state, ideas she can then take to decision makers in Charleston and Washington. Should be an interesting endeavor” – Phil Kablers WV Gazette
