About Marian Kišďurka, Michal Šimonfy

The web portal Odkaz pre Starostu, created by Marian Kišďurka and Michal Šimonfy, is another good sign of local self-governments being open to citizen input for improving their performance. As an apolitical forum for citizens to raise very practical issues, it allows local self-governments to be more responsive. The online system encourages more youth to be active and it also relies on citizens who are outside more often and attentive to problems such as cyclists or mothers with children.
