Transparent Chennai is excited to promote greater transparency and accountability in the upcoming ward councilor elections, scheduled for late October. We are doing this in two ways – firstly, by collecting detailed information about the roles and responsibilities and the performance of all existing councilors, and presenting all that data to you, the voters. And secondly, by putting together an experiment in crowd-sourcing the data needed for real accountability of our local elected representatives. We will be working with volunteers and students from all over the city to collect data about important civic issues like walkability and public sanitation in a single ward, Ward 152, starting Saturday September 10th.
