So, why does no one vote, when we used to a couple decades ago? Learning about your city is absurdly difficult and incredibly boring. Especially in a world, where people don’t know what it’s like to be bored anymore. The Burg is tackling this task by building a new front page of your city that is informative, fascinating, and makes it considerably easier to vote.
The Burg will be hosting a Digital Town Hall through the app with Mayor Robert Garcia this week. Burg users will be able to submit questions directly to Mayor Garcia who will begin responding and engaging his constituents on Oct 19th at 2 pm.
At The Burg we are trying to build a space for communities to thrive; a “front page of Compton” where voters and residents can congregate together and unite.
We go over the highlights of The Burg over the course of our first month! It’s been an exciting road. We’ve seen people report of Compton having brown tap water, Westwood Forward coalition organize on the platform, and much more. We can’t wait to improve the platform, and see what’s to come!
We are proud to announce The Burg is officially available for download on iPhones and Androids across in Los Angeles County!
