Over the past few months, JohnCarterWatch has been turning up the heat on our Congressional representative, John R. Carter (R-Round Rock). Jason Steed, the blogger behind JohnCarterWatch, recently announced that he would no longer write long-form posts on that blog due to time constraints.
Steed did promise to offer twitter updates (you do follow @profsteed, don’t you?), but this left us wanting more. The staff here at EyeOnWilliamson is sympathetic to the challenges of balancing personal and professional commitments with the demands of citizen journalism, so we asked if he would be interested in joining us here at Eye On Williamson. We’re pleased to announce that Steed agreed.
Our hope is that as a team, we can help Steed focus on what he does best — write pithy, scathing critiques of the hypocrisy and missteps of our feckless curmudgeon in the House — more efficiently. We’ll continue to report on the decline of the Williamson county Republican party and the corruption, cronyism and incompetence of their local elected officials.
Together, our shared goal is the replacement of our elected officials with politicians more responsive to the needs of working families. Please keep an eye out for future posts from Steed here and be sure to let him know in the comments how much you appreciate his voluntary efforts.
