San Francisco Assessor Phil Ting Continues "Ask an Expert" Webcast Series this Thursday
Reset San Francisco's Live Interactive Discussion to Feature Former Director of
SF's Economic and Workforce Development Department Michael Cohen
SAN FRANCISCO, CA – Assessor Phil Ting's user generated government website ResetSanFrancisco.org will continue its live webcast series, "Ask an Expert," this Thursday, October 14 at 4:00 pm (PST). The webcast allows viewers to submit questions in real-time to policy experts and community leaders working to reform San Francisco.
The Ask an Expert series is part of a vision shared by Phil Ting and members of the www.ResetSanFrancisco.org community to tap the wisdom and energy of an online community to help reform San Francisco. The site is pioneering tools, such as streaming video and social media, to crowd source civic engagement in better government.
This week the Reset community will hear from Michael Cohen, immediate past director of the San Francisco Economic and Workforce Development Office. Cohen helped plan and win approval for some of the largest, and most controversial, land use projects in recent San Francisco history. The community may submit questions online at any time for the Ask the Experts series at www.ResetSanFrancisco.org. The San Francisco Ask an Expert webcast launched last week as Assessor Phil Ting moderated a discussion with BART Board Director Tom Radulovich and Municipal Transportation Commissioner Cameron Beach.
Reset San Francisco is an online community of more than one thousand members bringing people together to discuss smarter solutions for San Francisco. Reset San Francisco members identified the Ask an Expert webcast as a way to become better advocates for resetting San Francisco. The site is currently focused on reforming San Francisco city government, improving the San Francisco Municipal Railway, increasing San Francisco public safety, making housing more affordable, improving the San Francisco economy, making our schools better and other issues identified through the site's open source community architecture.
