Maher: watching the powerful propose policy

Posted by WhoSaidYouSaid on November 28th, 2010

Documenting politicians, policymakers and activists in their own words is invaluable in putting them to the test - and informing the public.

Kelly Maher, a co-founder of WhoSaidYouSaid.com, described that as a key goal of the website, speaking on a recent new media and politics panel, hosted by the Centennial Institute at Colorado Christian University in Lakewood, Colo.

“One of the purposes of WhoSaidYouSaid.com is to elevate the conversation - and change the conversation upstream,” Maher said. “But you can’t do that if you don’t know where people actually stand on things. And, so, you’re looking for those moments where people tell you what they actually, truly, believe. And what they’re going to do. Which then translates into policy decisions, which then affect all Coloradans.”

Some examples…
