King County, WA to Vote on Pioneering Citizen Councilor Network

King County, Washington will be voting on a groundbreaking initiative in November 2007. Initiative 24 creates a Citizen Councilor Network open to every citizen in the county. It establishes a feedback communication system owned by the people where small groups in homes or workplaces can share opinions on public issues with results posted on a Forum Foundation website for reflection by officials, government staff, news media, and citizens. The program is self-funded (no taxes) and administered by the County Auditor. If passed, King County will be the first government in the world to use the Forum Foundation’s new Algorithmic Resonance Social Technology.
