About Us

What if?

What if busy people could engage with their municipality on their schedule?


What if citizens could offer constructive input on public policies  from the device in the palm of their hand?


What if people thought they were truly part of the process and not just being told what to do or spun into someone else's agenda?


What if there were reliable real-time metrics to predict overall support?
