CitySourced is an enterprise platform for local and state government that was founded in 2008. We began as a best of breed service request solution (311, report a pothole, graffiti etc.) but have evolved to focus more broadly on providing government with a complete native mobile app for citizens to communicate with every department of their community.
POLCO’s Civic Engagement Platform helps local governments post surveys and questions along with background materials, helps make those questions broadly shareable, and then collects all citizen input and cross-references it against voter-files and other verification lists to produce sentiment and comment dashboards and reports broken down by district and demographics.
Cities can ask questions from across the policy lifecycle (general sentiment on parks or even non-binding referenda on agenda items broken down by district), and can share them out through all communication channels including social, and only have to manage the conversation and collect all organized input in one place.
Priority based budgeting is a leading best practice in local government and a powerful lever for change. ResourceX (having merged with the Center for Priority Based Budgeting in 2017) provides the software solution and powerful analytic tools to implement a priority based budget using data and evidence to transparently and exponentially improve results for citizens and the community.
I’m the co-founder and executive director of ELGL. I love my job. Other things I love: local government, my family, my dog Michael Jordan, sandwiches, naps, books, and skee-ball.
