In our democratic system, people quickly grow frustrated when they feel their representatives are not listening to them. To many voters, it seems policymakers are more interested in serving partisan or special interest agendas than working for their constituents.
Local government representatives may be listening more closely to voters, but many people don’t have the time to get informed on issues and share their feelings with their reps. Luckily, a new tool may help solve this problem!
Listen to this interview with Nick Mastronardi, the creator of Polco, the new website and app that allows local governments to query their residents, share information about issues, and make data-driven decisions about policy. Appleton and Oshkosh are already on board, with more locations added all the time. Would you like your local leaders to give this new tool a try?
