Why aren't our elected officials blogging?

It's well-known that the best time to campaign for reelection is when you're not a candidate which leads me to wonder why so many elected officials are silent on the Web between elections.

A couple of Virginia state legislaslators wrote this to illustrate why it may be a good idea for elected officials to blog. It's great reading.

In the case of village officials in Pleasant Prairie, blogging would give them another communication tool which may be quite important given their claim that the local newspaper doesn't do the village justice.
