Democracy takes many forms. The goal of HeartGov has always been to simply create connections between government and people. State Senator Jesse Hamilton, who has been a supporter of HeartGov from the beginning, wanted to see those connections happen, even if they weren’t about broader issues. He believed that sometimes it would be nice if government just reached out to send warm wishes.
Earlier today we sent out a text to some constituents simply wishing everyone a happy 4th of July weekend. That’s all. Sometimes it’s nice to just reach out and send warm wishes to someone. Government isn’t all town halls and legislation. Sometimes government is just your neighbor saying hello to you.
The above picture is a graph of the messages as they went out. The above picture represents an hour of true democracy in action.
Happy 4th of July everyone!
