A similarly curious FrontBurnervian noticed the keepitopen site was gone and sent an e-mail to the site’s organizers encouraging them to use it as a discussion forum to hammer out a better proposal than Blackwood did. Here’s the response he got:
Thanks for your message.
The goal of the Coalition for Open Government was to defeat Blackwood. A diverse groups of folks came together to accomplish that one thing. Goal accomplished.
It will be up to you and other citizens of Dallas to work with the elected leaders and business community to craft alternatives just as it was up to this coalition of citizens, elected officials and members of the business community to defeat a bad idea.
Thousands look forward to seeing what you are willing to do to help make that happen.
