SFOpen 2011: David Chiu

David ChiuAs part of SFOpen 2011, we’re featuring the San Francisco mayoral candidates and their thoughts and ideas on open government and Government 2.0. We’re interviewing each of them and have asked them to commit to the Open Government Pledge for San Francisco.

Meet David Chiu.

Committed to the Open Government Pledge for San Francisco?


Open government statement

“For open government to mature, San Francisco needs a mayor who speaks the language of the tech community and believes deeply that technology can engage a sometimes disconnected public – and make government work better in lean budget times. As the former founder of a small technology company, I am uniquely suited to be a mayor who makes San Francisco the undisputed leader on open government.”

    Interesting how Chiu is pledging to open govt when he was part of a backdoor deal to keep Twitter in the city and voted to approve the ordinance that legitimized that deal. Is that open govt Chiu?
