View of the Week (II): On Goverment @ Work

We wanted to report on a very interesting compliation of Government in action courtesy of the team at +GovLoop which our team and founder has been an enthusiastic support for years:

Making moves, solving problems.     

State and local government workers are on the ground floor. They work directly beside and regularly hear from their constituents. It's personal.

And with this feedback, they are able to improve citizen services with innovations that could take the federal government years, if not decades, to implement.
