They need a wiki
Fix PA = Fix it.
Wiki's Roots and Wings
This wiki, Fix PA, began in May 2008. More than 3,000 articles migrated from Platform.For-Pgh. Today, Fix PA has 5,109 articles.
The Platform.For-Pgh wiki and its 3,456 pages is being ported to Fix PA with a more focused framework. Many Pittsburgh issues are really regional and state-wide. The Fix PA mission offers a better fit.
This Fix PA wiki aims to become a best-practices template for other states. FixOH, FixNJ, FixNY, FixWV could be established. Various wikis, tied together with FixUSA could help tie together many political issues and people of various locations.
Fixes of PA's Past
A statement from a Pennsylvania politician resonated on different dimensions. The third term mayor of Pittsburgh, Tom Murphy, D, a former member of the PA House, said, "The fix is in." He was speaking about the expansion of state-sanctioned gambling and Pittsburgh's pending slots parlor. This wiki is a new way to Fix PA and counter the old, Fix is in PA.
Political corruption breaks against the people of Pennsylvania. Their crooked ways are coupled with closed meetings among VIPs. Fix PA hopes to fight this done deal mentality and "fix is in legacy" plus its resulting apathy and ignorance.
Plenty of options exist for fixing. See Fixing Community Resources for pointers to other sites. And, add your own to this list of resources.
