DescriptionIt’s no secret that many Americans are shamefully uninformed about their elected representatives particularly at the local level. The blame for this can often go as much to local press as to citizens themselves but thanks to Gotham Gazette an online source for what’s happening in the world of NYC government citizens of the nation’s largest metropolis will have to to blame something other than the media if they can’t name their borough president or the nuances of the latest bond issue.
