Is Electronic Government
Watching You!
Amy Williams, Staff Writer

    FRESNO STATE -- This is a question I have been pondering myself. I believe it is because they fear my knowledge of everything LAME.
     If you want to ask me a lame question, I'll probably know the answer. For instance, if you were to ask me who the little guy from "Fantasy Island" was, I would tell you "Herve Villechaize".
     See what I mean. How many people know that guys name, and how to spell it. This is why the government fears me.
     They know that my useless information could be used against enemies of the United States. They could send me into a hostile country and have me tell them boring facts until they were bored to death. I believe that this and this alone is the cause of all my grief. If only I hadn't told you this!
    The concept of electronic government is to provide services and information to citizens electronically, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. As the demand for electronic services increases, governments are challenged to provide these services to citizens. The Bulldog News lists a few resources, including local e-governments web sites of interest.
    A municipal web site should promote democracy, encourage economic activity and enhance service delivery to citizens.
     In addition to local government links and oter resources rederrs have referrd us to. If you would like to have your local governent .s link listed here just send the link to
