RALEIGH — Raleigh City Halls chief information officer was recently tapped by the Obama administration to help fix Detroit.
Gail Roper is among five city government technology experts from around the country on the two-day visit to Detroit. The White House has charged the group with providing recommendations about how the beleaguered Motor City can use technology to help boost the economy, stimulate innovation, streamline government processes and cut costs.
Ropers counterparts for the visit hail from Boston, Chicago, New Orleans and Louisville, Ky.
It is an honor to be included on this team, Roper said in a news release. Municipal leaders have a long history of collaboration and sharing lessons learned.
