July 10th: How “Civic Technologies” Can Create Happy Citizens and Improve Local Government


We are is pleased to welcome Kevin Lyons to present at Mountain Minds Monday: “How Civic Technologies Can Create Happy Citizens and Improve Local Government.”

At a time when citizens’ satisfaction with national and state government is low, there is a need for innovation at the local level to better serve citizens.

Kevin Lyons, serial entrepreneur and a longtime “good governance geek,” is Co-Founder and CEO of Governance Sciences Group, the creator of FlashVote, which helps governments get rapid feedback from busy citizens.

In this interactive discussion, Lyons will present the science of good government and discuss how and why government can end up off track. Learn how the future is bright for fixing these problems with technology all while saving money, providing more value and making citizens happier.
