Nir Barkat is a Good Man

Yesterday we received a bag with a little booklet from Nir Barkat. The booklet was entitled "City Watch-Taking the Cleaning In Our Hands." Nir Barkat has been running a campaign to clean up Jerusalem. Every few weeks he has volunteers go around to different neighborhoods and clean them up. The latest project is this Friday, Tu Bshvat. "Everyone throw away one piece of trash, Together there will be 700,000 less pieces of garbage." All I know about Nir Barkat is that he started one of the first (the first?) hi tech companies in Jerusalem and he ran for mayor last time but lost to Lapoliansky. I don't know if he'd make a good mayor or what he stands for, but I'm glad he came up with this campaign.
