As of today, you’ll be able to use the Internet for a nobler purpose than finding personal ads and porn: you can look up politicians as well. A new service provided by the New York Public Interest Research Group allows you to type in your New York City address and be served with a full page of local, state and federal government representatives for your district. Phone, email and address contacts are also provided.
Plus, the page is linked to an interactive mapping page where you can call up and manipulate maps of the district boundaries. To see the service, go to NYPIRG’s homepage at www.nypirg.org.
