As voter turnout declines and approval ratings reach record lows, it seems certain that Americans have given up on government. Gavin Newsom, Lieutenant Governor of California and former mayor of San Francisco, argues that nothing is further from the truth in his upcoming book, Citizenville: Reconnecting People and Government in the Digital Age. Across the country, he notes the stories of individuals who are bridging the vast chasm separating government from the technologies already revolutionizing our daily lives. He argues that we are in an unprecedented era of citizen participation, and the only way for Americans to secure their future is to reinvent their relationship with their government—as they have countless times before, and have the power to do so again.
