SCS Instructor Don Gordon Launches New Political Blog
SCS undergraduate instructor Don Gordon recently launched the political blog, Naked Chicago! A Good Look for City Government, on Chicago Now, an online community created by the Chicago Tribune. Gordon, who has more than 30 years of experience as a community organizer and ran for Chicago’s 49th Ward in 2007, has been a long-time advocate for a more open and transparent city government and has transformed his classrooms into real-world partnerships with Chicago government to improve transparency. His blog will reflect on local political news with a focus on providing examples of where city government lacked transparency and how citizens can make government in Chicago more open and transparent. Gordon, author of Piss ‘Em All Off: And Other Practices of the Effective Citizen, is currently working on his second book about transparency in government. Click here to follow Gordon’s blog.
