Congrats to Garrett & Staff

I know at times I may be a bit critical of the content on Garrett's website, but as far having a workable website I appreciate what Representative Scott Garrett throws up on the web. It turns out; I'm not the only one.

Garrett was recognized by the Congressional Management Foundation for his website. Receiving a Bronze Mouse Award, Garrett's site received high marks across a number of categories. In the Foundation's estimation, Garrett's site excelled most in Communications Tools:
These are all the features and applications that foster a relationship between the user and the office, beyond just reading what is posted on the Web site.

Garrett was one of only 16.8% of Congress to receive recognition from the Foundation, so it's kind of a big deal. Out of 435 members in the House, there are only 46 with a better website. Garrett didn't receive the award in 2006 so it's probably time to give Mary MacLean, or whoever oversees the site, a raise for a job well done.
