He has launched a policy blog, made some useful Google maps and now the newly elected Los Angeles Councilman Paul Krekorian is preparing to launch an iPhone App in April, says ABC News. "We're living in a time where people expect more efficiency, more engagement and acocuntablity from their elected officials. This is a vehicle to accomplish all of those things," he said. The app is expected to act as a conduit for emergency info, news, road closures and let users report potholes, etc. As usual, Krekorian is leading the way, trying something new and perhaps setting a standard other city councilmembers will have to catch up with.
