California has more than 4,500 local governments, yet it often feels ungoverned. Proponents of so-called “e-government” say technology can change that: the digital world, they argue, offers a better way to connect citizens to government and provide services faster and more efficiently. A new report, "Hear Us Now?", surveys how California governments use technology and proposes ways of measuring the success of their e-government initiatives -- topics that the panelists will explore at this event.
Please join us to discuss the future of e-government and whether it can solve the challenges facing local communities.
