What's a Goo Goo?

Posted by Eric Hoppel on

"Goo Goo" is a nickname for what many call the "Good Government" groups. They operate around the country with the goal of helping to make government more responsive to citizens. One of the leading "Goo Goo" groups in Albany is the New York Public Interest Research Group, or NYPIRG.

Blair Horner is Executive Director of NYPIRG. As part of the #citizenactive project, I spoke to Blair about what NYPIRG does and what it means to be a good government group.
