Project Description


My Two Cents is about you having the voice to be heard and enabling others to do the same. Have you ever had an issue with a local service but no where to turn? Some people do not know off the top of their head which council or department manages services, we want to change that.
With My Two Cents, you will be able to make geolocated complaints, view other peoples complaints, discuss and bring attention to these problems. Most importantly, you will be heard.
My Two Cents will colate every issue nationwide, and notify every department available. If a bus stop is experiencing trouble, then your council, your electorate and even the department of transport will hear about this. We will bring attention to popular issues in the community and empower individuals.
