Civic tech project PoliFLW follows thousands local politicians
We are happy to report the following press release of a tool developed in a project of Catholijn Jonker:
As thousands of local politicians have a heavy responsibility because municipalities get more and more tasks, journalism suffers with too little means and time to be able to follow these local politicians. Digital tools can help. That is why Open State Foundation launched the civic tech project PoliFLW.
PoliFLW helps journalists, local advocates and others, save time to follow public remarks of political parties and politicians at a local level. In this way we help journalists to simultaneously follow large groups of politicians, including more than ten thousand municipal council members, with what they said in public.
