“I was attracted to TAP because of its focus on empowering people to participate in the democratic process. I believe that, with many of our formal institutions corrupted, only the people themselves still have the ability to restore integrity and credibility to our damaged election processes. At TAP, we have the resources and can develop the tools to help ordinary citizens re-establish transparent and credible election processes, and I’m proud to have the opportunity to participate in that effort.” said Meisburger.
