My Gov 2.0 Hero: Phil Tate
Manor, Texas has received lots of recognition for the innovative technologies that have come out of it, but many people donâ€™t know all the individuals that are responsible. My role as Assistant City Manager and CIO is to steer the development of emerging technologies in Manor, but the real hero is our City Manager, Phil Tate.
Phil is a Gov 2.0 Hero because he chooses to say â€œyesâ€ to new emerging technologies that allow us to be more efficient and transparent. It would be so easy for a city manager to say â€œnoâ€ to new ideas and concepts, but Manor has been fortunate to have such a progressive leader with the drive to serve citizens and instill government accountability.
