Newt Opens California/Silicon Valley Office
PALO ALTO, Calif., Feb. 26 -- American Solutions for Winning the Future announced today that it will expand its organization with the opening of a new office in Silicon Valley that serves as the organization's technology headquarters. This new office makes
American Solutions one of the few national grassroots organizations with a visible presence in Silicon Valley.
Former Speaker of the House and American Solutions General Chairman Newt Gingrich made the announcement in a video posted on American Solutions' YouTube channel: http://www.youtube.com/americansolutions.
"We're excited to be in Silicon Valley and to learn from the best of the private sector so we can utilize the latest technological breakthroughs to fundamentally transform government from the world that fails to the world that works," said Gingrich. "We believe it's possible to create a
world that works and to move the bureaucracies of the past - obsolete, slow, cumbersome, paper-based institutions - into a very dynamic, networked, information technology future."
"Our office will be looking to work with the innovative and entrepreneurial people located in Silicon Valley to establish ourselves as a leader in online politics and serve as a model for successful online political efforts," said David Kralik, Director of Internet Strategy for
American Solutions and manager of the Silicon Valley office. "We want to engage in a dialogue with technology leaders and to communicate a message of free market principles where consumers decide who wins and not the government."
American Solutions is committed to utilizing the latest technology to connect elected officials at all levels and millions of activists to form a diverse, decentralized, collaborative network that will aggregate the best ideas and solutions to move government into the 21st century.
An example of American Solutions' dedication to using new technology occurred when Newt Gingrich made an appearance in the virtual world of Second Life for a Solutions Day workshop on September 27, 2007.
American Solutions for Winning the Future is a new, non-partisan organization built around three goals: to defend America and our allies abroad and defeat our enemies, to strengthen and revitalize America's core values, and to move the government into the 21st Century. Its General
Chairman is former Speaker Newt Gingrich. For more information about American Solutions visit http://www.AmericanSolutions.com.
