Why eGov? Because some communities C.A.R.E.

Submitted by Norm Roulet on Thu, 01/06/2005 - 13:43.

I receive lots of great e-knowledge from the city of Indianapolis, which has great ICE - Internet Community Effectiveness - and they (and other high-ICE cities) use the WWW for more than just political grandstanding. Below is a nice example, where Indy Gov is leveraging their eGov excellence in collaboration with their Colts football team to collect money for Tsunami victoms - Colts C.A.R.E. - (Communities Assisting Relief
Efforts). So, a city is leveraging relationships with citizens and an event attracting 10,000s of people to raise money to help 100,000s - that's a smart community and administration - read on about champions working together:
