Phila. councilman wants local government to go electronic

The Philadelphia government should be an open book, yet ironically, completely paperless, according to a new plan put forth by Councilman Bill Green last night


Central to his “Open Philadelphia Government” plan is utilizing technology. City government is still largely run with paper forms and outdated procedures, Green said, and he claims a paperless government will save the city $200 million a year while also improving government services.

"I ran for office four years ago and I am running today because I love this City... My campaign theme in 2007 and still today - 'beholden to none, accountable to all' - reflects my commitment to be a strong, independent voice for all Philadelphians." - Bill Green
