Must Read

Gotham Gazette has launched a new web site to track money in politics. Here’s how they describe Councilpedia, a project funded by the Knight Foundation:

You can search a politician’s campaign donations, the bills he or she sponsored and member items — and then tell us what you know.

Each councilmember has his/her own page. Here are the direct links to the pages for the Lower East Side’s city representatives, Margaret Chin and Rosie Mendez.
