ABOUT THIS NETWORK
WHAT DO WE ACCOMPLISH HERE?
Finding Others: First and foremost, getting connected
with others that also want to develop an issue to make this community better. Here, at least one contact person will be named, possibly more.
Maybe a group will form from this - maybe it won't - but others will be able to
find details about the issue even if one doesn't - and they may take
Presenting Information: Dissemination to
people, or to curious people, of up to date information is difficult. So
is a presentation of in-depth discussions of the issues. Here, one quick link
from the first page can bring details about your issue to many. You just
have to share the web link. We cannot guarantee accuracy - but can share with
you as much as we think we know. Please check the details out with the
Township or your Commissioner before relying upon any info here.
Weighing-In On the Issues: E-Committees and E-Petitions and E-Votes can be formed here to bring the power of numbers to an issue. More info on these
soon (give us a minute - we're brand new!)
Looking to the Future: We hope to bring you posting boards where you can find the ideas of others all in one place. And more sophisticated
voting pages - where you can E-vote and have the tally automatically
calculated right on the site. But to get underway, we are happy to have
one place where all can meet. So share your ideas about how to make the
site better, and we hope you find someone to network with you.
Philosophy: The Abington Citizens Network is intended for the use of those who seek to
better our communities. It intends to facilitate the ability of each
individual to disseminate vital and factual information on a topic and to find
others that will form a team or network to make a difference for themselves,
their families, their communities, and their world. Strong, safe communities for a strong,
Abington Only: The Abington Citizens Network is intended for use by Abington residents only.
Interested parties from other communities may contact someone through this site
to learn about or share issue related ideas, but all electronic petitions and
speaking platforms on this particular vehicle are intended for the Abington
Community residents alone. If you wish to network with another community, please look for
that county or state network website under
All views welcome: All views, both pro and con, may be represented on every issue. If someone has represented the Pro - feel free to send in the
other side, or vice versa. This site has no intention of siding politically but
does not exclude politically inclined opinions and ideas. Equal
representation is available for all.
Anonymity: Experimentally we will see if it works to
allow introduction by email address only (free email addresses, separate
from your personal or business address, can be obtained at Hotmail, Yahoo,
Google and by
other providers). This may allow a freer exchange of ideas first before people are comfortable enough to work together. See our
