Three new fellows for the citizen hacking group Code for America were introduced Tuesday to OpenAccessPhilly stakeholders to kick-off their year with the City of Philadelphia.
OpenAccessPhilly, a public/private stakeholders group convened by the City of Philadelphia, worked with the inaugural Code for America fellows last year. Nearly 30 OpenAccessPhilly members, including city employees and other technologists, met in the PhillyStat Room in the Municipal Services Building Tuesday evening. The internal meeting was followed by a good old fashioned happy hour at Ladder 15 on Sansom Street.
All of the CFA fellows, Michelle Lee, Elizabeth Hunt, and Alex Yule, chose to spend their Code for America year in Philadelphia — Technically Philly wrote more about the trio here. Hunt said she chose Philly because the city demonstrates “the most focus on civic engagement.”
“Philadelphia was chosen for a second term because of the strength of its partnerships,” said Lee. “Particularly in city government.”
