The Bowling Green Civic Assembly Report

2018. Joe Karaganis, Stephanie Sung, Sam Ford
Topics: 

Over 2000 people participated in our 'Pol.is' online civic conversation in Bowling Green, Kentucky.  Together they submitted over 600 statements and voted nearly a quarter million times.  These statements dealt with divisive issues like immigration and LGBTQ rights but, overwhelmingly, the things people wanted to talk about were things about which people agreed.  People agreed about traffic and local development, about the need for improvoded community and commercial services, about government accountability, job training, and education.  This report explores the Bowling Green results and explains the methodology.
