I’ve been a resident of New York City for [x] years. [Add any factoids about your involvement in schools, communities, small businesses].
[If you or your company backed the Kickstarter project, please include this - ] Disclosure: my company invested in this project because we believe that good design is essential to the engine of our democracy.
