Rep. Baird’s Web site gets gold

U.S. Rep. Brian Baird’s Web site won one of 18 gold medals in an annual contest that ranks the best sites on Capitol Hill.

The Vancouver Democrat was the only Washington representative to place in the Congressional Management Foundation contest.

I’m guessing he won largely because his site has a lot of neat multimedia features, including a video “welcome” clip; video clips of testimony and committee meetings; and MP3s of Baird discussing issues such as immigration.

Sen. Patty Murray won one of 27 silver medals. Murray’s site also has audio and video features and it prominently displays a blog she wrote during a Middle East visit, but it hasn’t been updated since 2005.
