Hi there. Can I tell you what I dream of doing?
I want to ensure that their is an increase of citizens participation in their local governments by ensuring that they have access to their representatives at all times so that they can communicate their needs effectively to their elected leaders and improve service delivery by increasing accountability.
It's all part of making a better world.
Citizens will actively participate in their local governments efficiently beyond their vote. Leaders will be able to understand how they rank with their constituents while citizens will be able to hold their leaders accountable for their actions. There would be a database that shows performance of each elected official vis-à-vis the promises that they made before getting elected.
This is really going to help people.
Citizens who are under the jurisdiction of specific counties
Members of County Assembly
It's not just about having an idea though - here are the things I know I can achieve:
Increased citizen participation in local governments such as increased petitions.
Increased and strategic avenues of participation set up by county governments that would target the poor and non-poor
Ranking platform and feedback center from citizens concerning county governors and members of county assemblies
I'm going to make this happen, and this is how I know it'll make a difference.
I will know that i have achieved my vision when i see increased participation of citizens in their local government, increased trust between leaders and constituents and strategic programmatic avenues set up by local government to ensure that their citizens are actively participating in county affairs.
Thanks for listening to me. Will you help me build a better world?
