iGrijalva: Congressman Releases iPhone App

Posted By on Wed, Aug 10, 2011 at 11:20 AM

Congressman Raul Grijalva has released an iPhone app to make it easier to keep track of his activities. We think it would be cooler if it you had some way of catapulting mustaches to crush the heads of tea-bag-protected Eric Cantors and Jon Kyls, but maybe that's coming in 2.0.

The press release:


Rep. Raúl M. Grijalva, the co-chair of the Congressional Progressive Caucus, today announced the release of his new iPhone app, which allows constituents and interested groups to follow legislative updates, public events, press coverage and other activities in his office. The app is free to download at http://bit.ly/nZL2p1.

“Connecting with people is what good government should really be about, and this is an important way to connect,” Grijalva said. “Anyone who wants to know more about what’s going on, both for Southern Arizona and for progressives around the country, now has another free tool at her disposal. I believe making more information available to voters and interested citizens is a valuable public service, and that’s what we’re hoping to do with this announcement.”

The app was developed by iConstituent, a government internet services provider.
