Vote for Geeks: Why and How more Technologists, Engineers, and Scientists Should Run for Office

Long description:
On the surface level, scientists, technologists, and engineers might not seem like the perfect politicians. Maybe they aren’t always as airbrushed as the pundits on TV. But consider this: each year decisions are made on school boards, in state legislatures, and in Congress that affect infrastructure, science education, health research, and the technology industry. We need more geeks at all levels of government -- school boards, city councils, state legislatures, and Congress. America needs you. And you need to know how to position yourself, fundraise, mobilize grassroots support, run for office, and win.
