New York City Residents Will Now Have Easy Way to Learn about, and Weigh In On, Council Bills

NEW YORK, NY – On Thursday, April 30th, New York City Council Member James Vacca, Chair of Committee on Technology, will host a streaming, interactive press conference on Google to celebrate the live launch of the civic engagement app and website, Countable, for New York City residents. The website will be live at the time of the presser. Council Member Vacca will be joined by Bart Myers, CEO of Countable, other New York City Council Members, and interested good government groups.

Countable is a top app for quickly learning about legislation, and weighing in with lawmakers about it in just one click. Users around the country have generated well over 1.1 million emails to Capitol Hill, in less than a year since launch.
