GovHub (http://www.govhub.org), a new social platform that is revolutionizing the way citizens consume political information and organize around political candidates, issues, and legislative initiatives, will host a live online question and answer session on Wednesday, April 25 with Berkeley City Councilman Laurie Capitelli.
Councilman Capitelli – a Bay Area native and University of California Berkeley graduate – has represented District 5 of Berkeley for more than ten years. In addition to serving as councilman, Capitelli serves on the Berkeley City Planning Commission, the Zoning Adjustments Board and is also a founding and continuing board member of the Berkeley Public Education Foundation.

GovHub (http://www.govhub.org) aims to revolutionize the way we consume political information and how we use that information to impact policy development without the interference of big organized interests. Strictly non-partisan, the platform empowers citizens to organize around political candidates, issues, and legislative initiatives at the neighborhood, county, state and federal levels. The platform’s social networking engine allows users to communicate with each other and their representatives, as well as create their own interest groups, so they can access the connections and information they need to create true grassroots political energy behind critical issues.
