Vote Rasiej for Human Connections
Tomorrow, New Yorkers interested in reinvigorating local government with a focus on a mobilized citizenry should vote for my friend Andrew Rasiej for Public Advocate.
A friend of mine who’s watching this primary called Andrew “the Internet guy” over the weekend, but he is more than that. He’s someone who wants to improve what his recent NYT profile called the “poor flow of information in New York City.”
Read his blog entry about how information savvy could have saved lives and narrowed the obvious racial divide that hobbled the response to Hurricane Katrina.
And finally, consider the importance of Andrew’s broader campaign message, that the city is full of public advocates. Motivated individuals making a difference in their communities, who will serve as models and help mobilize others at an entirely new level when City Hall finds new ways to connect them and spotlight their efforts.
