CEO Zac Bookman completes cross-country bike tour thanking public servants, successfully raising more than $20,000 for Sandra Day O’Connor Institute For American Democracy

OpenGov has concluded its “OpenGov Across America” campaign in support of local government leaders, raising more than $20,000 in support of the Sandra Day O’Connor Institute For American Democracy. These funds will help educate future civic leaders and enable a more informed and engaged citizenry.



In conjunction with the campaign, OpenGov CEO Zac Bookman rode more than 3,500 miles, and met with and said thank you to town, city, and county leaders across nine states: California, Nevada, Utah, Colorado, Kansas, Missouri, Illinois, Kentucky, and Virginia. 

“We have a big country, with many different cultures and geographies,” said OpenGov CEO Zac Bookman. “Our local government leaders who navigate through these differences for the good of their communities deserve our thanks. The more we embrace our differences and lean into our democracies, the better off we’ll be.

“The Institute is deeply grateful to Mr. Bookman for his remarkable accomplishment and dedication,” stated Sarah Suggs, President and CEO of the Sandra Day O’Connor Institute For American Democracy. “We are honored that Open Gov Across America selected the Institute founded by Justice O’Connor as the charitable beneficiary of his extraordinary efforts.”
