Hey Emmanuel,

Check out my blog. I am sure the net-savvy citizens would have seen it by now.

I think there is potential for annual reporting to be an extremely interesting way to reach the people, tell them why they need to vote for us again every year for 4 years.

People would know their own locality. Saying you have 7 overhead bridges built would ignite local children to cycle past every one of them. It would be interesting when they find only 5... Then we can have an episode of "Kids say the darnest things!"
