    Tony Trupiano's website is below...

      My first impression of the website is good. It's just a touch busy, which cuts its first glance impact some. But that's a minor issue.

      I think his picture should be larger (not huge, but it should be the first thing your eye is drawn to) and his expression should be a little more positive. Sincere smiles catch the eye and build positive feeling.

      The good: I knew immediately where Tony is running, and the navigation menu makes it easy to find whatever you want to know.

      The less good: Tony could be making a lot better use of his blog. One post in September? He should be putting a statement there several times a week at the very least. Every time Congress is in the news, he ought to be telling voters what he thinks about the issue. He should be talking about the Foley scandal (demanding accountability from the House leadership who covered up his problem), the Military Commissions Act (Why did Thadeus McCotter vote to put our troops at greater risk on the battlefield? Does Thadeus McCotter want to make Americans torturers?), warrantless surveillance and everything else the Congress has done for the past few weeks.

      If I was doing the site, I might edit down the bio a little. It could use a stronger focus. It ought to emphasize his "hook," that is, a very brief statement that tells why he's the one we need.

      His business background makes me think he ought to be talking fiscal responsibility up front. But strong opposition to the Iraq War, or accountability are also good "hook" issues.

      Overall: The website is easy to navigate and informative. It could have a little stronger visual impact -- but that's less important than good, strong content.
