OpenGov Launches “OpenGov Across America” Campaign In Support of Local Government Leaders and Public Service
CEO Zac Bookman to embark on cross-country bike tour to thank public servants and raise funds for Sandra Day O’Connor Institute For American Democracy
OpenGov has launched the “OpenGov Across America” campaign in support of local government leaders to thank them for shouldering the burden of keeping their communities safe and governments open for business throughout the pandemic.
As part of this campaign, OpenGov CEO Zac Bookman has set out on a nearly 4,000-mile cross-country bike tour to meet with and hear directly from town, city, and county leaders about how their governments have evolved to address the urgent needs of their communities in the pandemic.
In conjunction with this ride, OpenGov has committed to supporting the mission of the Sandra Day O’Connor Institute For American Democracy to increase awareness of the importance of civic engagement, civics education, and civil discourse. Together, they will raise funds to help educate future civic leaders and enable a more informed and engaged citizenry.
“I’m excited to embark on this amazing adventure to highlight the local government visionaries who have devoted their lives to serving American communities,” said OpenGov CEO Zac Bookman. “In support of that mission, OpenGov is proud to team up with the O’Connor Institute to champion the next generation of public servants and educate residents about the importance of civic engagement.”
“The Institute is gratified that OpenGov recognizes the importance of public service and leadership,” said Institute CEO Sarah Suggs. “We appreciate this tremendous effort by Zac Bookman in civic engagement and philanthropy.”
As OpenGov looks to shed light on the importance of local leadership, government leaders and public-sector allies are encouraged to post photos and videos of themselves thanking someone in the public sector or sharing how they got into public service on LinkedIn or Twitter with #OpenGovAcrossAmerica and #GovLove, for an opportunity to be featured on OpenGov’s social channels.
