So, benefits to local government of using and supporting open source (in 
general) and OSGeo in particular -

1) Save money
2) Grow small local business
3) Share knowledge with peer organisations
4) Be part of a wider governance culture
5) Rapid access to innovations
6) Preservation through open standards
7) Outreach through open data (starting again at 1 for open data)
N) ?

I should add more to the list, thinking this is a talk to management 
types who will be technologically aware but not that into details of 

Any advice much apprec,
