Today I review the websites for my district, the Fighting 3rd. We’re again faced with two websites whose content is all press releases and an incumbent who should know better.
Tom Latham – Republican, incumbent
|Detail level||Full site, multiple pages|
|Call to action||Three big buttons. Very clear|
AUTOPLAYING OLD TV ADS. BAD. No new content since Novermber 1. No content in Facebook or Twitter widgets. Autoplay videos on other pages. Blog content is press releases and blog posts that read like press releases. Completely bland. Website has nice colors and photography though the photos are squished in the header.
Gabriel De La Cerda – Democrat
|Detail level||Full site, some pages|
|CMS||WordPress, “Picoclean” theme|
|Call to action||Stretched out PayPal button|
First website with a translate option!
Gabe is running a scrappy one-man show so I’ll give him some free web advice.
