    I think the things you are doing in Woodstock are wonderful.I have been in contact with Minister Windi who has suggested me going ahead with a project that came out of the GovhackSA event I ran last year. I am going to be using Woodstock as a the pilot project and hoping that it is a success so that it can be implemented in other wards and used as a stepping stone to foster greater collaboration with the public and government.

    Background: I ran GovHackSA and I feel that the app we created could really assist in making woodstock seen as the innovation leader with tech. I have the go ahead to continue in a silo but I feel that collaboration is key and would like the opportunity to run the project objectives and outcomes past you.

    Even a phone call or I can pop past your offices.

    Thank you for taking the time and the opportunity in your busy diary.
