Matthew D. Barton
Born in Kansas City, raised in the Mid-West, I currently reside in Brooklyn, NY and work in Software Engineering.
I am passionate about using technology to improve the efficacy, efficiency and effectiveness of Government. The private sector spent the last thirty years maturing their operations with technology to improve productivity, efficiency and accountability. Applying similar efforts to local government could be an enormous boon both to the constituents of government services as well as the employees providing those services. The institutional inertia may be difficult to overcome but the benefits enormous, especially in the criminal justice sphere.
I have also worked as a playwright and actor.
