Dear interested person,
I took on this project somewhat by accident almost two years ago when the non-profit I was working for needed a better way to access legislator information. I’m so proud that CapitolBuddy became a useful tool to create the change people are working for at their state capitols.
Now, I’ve reached a point where the things I learned from CapitolBuddy are taking me to new ventures. It’s been a hard decision to stop working on CapitolBuddy. But the challenges have become too much for this one person to continue tackling; and the interest has been too small to bring on more team members.
If you still need something to replace the hole that CapitolBuddy has left in your workflow. I can recommend OpenStates, a free app from Sunlight Foundation. TrackBill is another good one, that allows you to track legislation.
Better advocacy for the underdog organizations is still something I’m passionate about. I hope to someday return to working on another project in that vein.
You can continue to follow my work on my personal blog and on twitter. Thanks for your interest.
Founder of CapitolBuddy
