    Twin Cities Drupal Government People

    I recently attended the Drupal4Gov BOF at DrupalCon Baltimore and was told that government folks are more likely to attend to Drupal events that have specific content targeted at them. Is this true?

    I am curious if there are any government folks who use Drupal and would be interested in a 1/2 to full day Drupal 4 Government Summit at Twin Cities Drupal camp this year.

    This is not an official announcement, just a probe to find out if there is any interest in the local community. This is something that I would be interest in facilitating, if there is sufficient interest.
