Invitation to Readers

Send me your stories, or links to stories, about the good and the bad about bureaucracies–problems with them, solutions to problems with them, or bureaucracies and bureaucrats who are getting it right and should be recognized and emulated. Stories can fall into any of these categories:

  • City, Town and Village
  • County
  • State
  • Federal
  • Corporate or Organizational
  • International

I can’t promise to post every one, or even to reply to each email, but you never know!

I would also be happy to hear from anyone interested in acting as a regional bureaucracy blogger, and eventually I would like to have people in every state, as well as people from other countries, shepherding the news in their regions. Public pressure is the surest way to improve transparency and accountability, and citizen journalists are in the best position to promote awareness and apply that pressure.

If you’re interested, or have even a single story to report, email [email protected]  I look forward to hearing from you!

As long as you’re a real person and not a spambot, you can contact me readily at:

You will first get an email asking you to confirm you’re a real person, but after that all your emails will come through without a hitch.

I will be happy to hear from you!
