Live Tweeting Winooski City Council Meeting Tonight


Published January 25, 2010 at 9:30 a.m.

If you live in Winooski, or if you're just curious what the heck is going on with our city council, check out this Twitter feed tonight starting at 6 p.m.

I set it up to enable two Champlain College students to live tweet the city council meeting. I mean, why not, right? There's no other live coverage of it anywhere, though you can watch the meeting on Channel 17 on TV or online after the fact. And the Free Press might run a story.

The crackerjack Champlain students are Erica Viscio and Hans Bardenheuer. I followed their Twitter streams of an event at Champlain last year and was really impressed with the way they summed up the speaker's presentation. They both live at Spinner Place, so it seems like it would be worth their while to find out what's going on in Winooski. Plus, I think this will be fun. But maybe I  have a twisted sense of fun...

Tune in at 6 to see how we do. Will the citizens turn out to protest the recent layoffs? Are Winooski-ites fired up about the city's budget deficit? When we know, we'll let you know here.
