Rasiej Plan Forwards Technology for New York City


August 18, 2005 By

New York City Public Advocate Candidate Andrew Rasiej has advocated some far-reaching technology initiatives for the city, including citywide wireless coverage and cell-phone enabled subways. Rasiej, a technology advisor to a number of high-profile Democrats, and a former member of the New York City Board of Education's task force on technology said in a recent press release that: "Today most students in our public schools can only get access to a computer for a measly one hour a week. That helps explain why kids in South Korea typically have better and faster access to the U.S. Library of Congress online than kids in the South Bronx. My plan will change that, so that we don't settle for leaving no child behind -- our goal should be to help every child get ahead." In polling for next month's primary, Rasiej trails Democratic incumbent Public Advocate Betsy Gotbaum.
