Who Represents You? HarlemCondoLife has the answer.

By HarlemGuy.

The New York Times recently unveiled a new site called Represent which we find particularly relevant and useful given the recent US Presidential election and ensuing political changes. 

It’s a simple, slick, elegant site allowing you to easily identify which political districts you live in based on an address.  It includes highly detailed maps showing where you live and how you fit into the political geography of the City.  Most importantly it shows who represents you at different levels of government in an easily digestible and accessible manner.

In addition, it collects information from around the Web and presents a customized stream of news about your representatives and what they are doing. Content is derived from New York Times stories and blog posts pulling references to public officials. The site also draws from official data sources such as Congressional roll-call votes.

Knowing who represents you, what they are up to, and how to reach them, is more important than ever.   Please check out the site and let us know what you think and what you learn.
