More local content

I would be quite interested in expanding the Local Government section of the forums, and making this a bit of a minor focus for the site. I often worry about having a multitude of different community/democracy/activism/etc sites around the place, each with such a narrow focus that they can't sustain themselves over the long term. So, I would like to create a Townsville, Local Government forum, and try to attract some new blood to the site in this way.

To achieve this, I also think we should look into making it easy to directly link to these forums, with a URL like Technically, I think this is quite easy, but then the question is, what do we link like this. To start with I would say only location specific forums. The front page is probably the best way to access most of the rest of the site.
