Crowdsourcing is collecting ideas and solutions from citizens to solve a problem. Using social media and web 2.0 tools, City Hall could effectively collect a number of creative ideas from us. And in this economical time, we need out-of-the-box thinking to get The City back on track.

Why don’t politicians empower us to get more involved and to get engaged? Why don’t we ask City Hall to crowdsource our ideas using these tools?

San Francisco is home to the most innovative and creative people in the world. So, why can’t our city government reflect this innovation, and why shouldn’t we demand it to be open and transparent using social media and available web 2.0 tools?

Yet not only should we demand open government at City Hall – but also politicians should work to empower the very people they represent.

And maybe that’s the only way we can truly make government work – by getting us more involved – a radical idea, I know. The end result not only means more voices and more ideas in city policy, but also, according to Pew, it means San Franciscans will be a happier bunch.

We all know that San Francisco is the greatest city in the world, and we have so much pride for the amazing things in this city. So let’s harness our positive, collaborative energy and get our city working again.

Sign this petition to ask elected officials to empower us to make our voices heard and to crowdsource City Hall.
