Description

With Scott Shafer, Host of KQEDís The California Report

Lieutenant Governor and former San Francisco Mayor Gavin Newsom discusses how ordinary citizens can use new digital tools to dissolve political gridlock and transform American democracy. In his first book, Citizenville: How to Take the Town Square Digital and Reinvent Government, Newsom argues that, just as the post office and the highway system channel both personal and private enterprises, digital government can be used to share information, needs and concerns, and help an enlightened citizenry collaborate.

"Gavin Newsom is a clear-eyed public servant who has never been satisfied with the status quo. Citizenville makes a fascinating case for a more engaged government, transformed to meet the challenges and possibilities of the 21st century, and where technology brings the critical tools of our democracy closer to its citizens than ever before."
ĖPresident Bill Clinton
