Our Councilmember Brad Lander has always been pretty accessible, but he’s about to get a little more open to your questions. He’s one of three city leaders who will be part of a new site called AskThem that lets the public ask their officials questions directly.
How it works is you enter your address and find your local leader (in this case, Lander), submit a question, and then other people have to support that question by voting them up — once the question gets a certain amount of support, the site sends the question to the official for a response. Each leader will answer around two questions per month.
The site launches on Monday, February 10, so get those questions ready. What do you want to ask Lander?
