The Urban Politico (www.theurbanpolitico.com) is a collaboration of six writers, who hold each other in high esteem, to address social, political and other issues which resonate within the populations in which they feel most connected; race, age, socioeconomic and political status, personal experience and any other identifying factor that can join us, rather than divide us. The Janitor is an attorney in NYC and he and Godson worked together as organizers on the 2008 Obama Campaign. Godson, a published author, is a former Chief of Staff for a State Representative in Philadelphia. The Fed, as the name implies, is in the Federal Gov in Washington D.C. and works with law makers on the Hill. Shady Grady is a computer expert, critical thinker and accomplished blogger from Michigan. The Storyteller is a news producer in Jacksonville, Florida who originally hails from South Side Chicago. GrandCentral is a former Wall Street banker turned public interest advocate from New York. These 6 writers share very similar views on many issues, however, all 6 have a different perspective. The Urban Politico is the recipient of the Black Weblog Awards 2010 award for Best Political Blog. We welcome lively debate from all of our readers and look forward to engaging any and all viewers who pay us a visit.
