“For of those to whom much is given, much is required.” – President John F. Kennedy, May 1963
These words have inspired many, including Seamus Kraft, Executive Director and Co-Founder of The OpenGov Foundation. Seamus grew up in Marblehead, Massachusetts, the birthplace of the American Navy in a state with roots that predate the United States of America. He describes it as a place where the principles that govern free society are palpable–they are in the air, where the community is still governed directly by citizens through a town meeting. Seamus’ family raised him to understand that the most important thing he can do with his life is to meaningfully serve others. All of this has led Seamus to develop a passion for service, which is why he works every day to help people live their best lives.
