GovFresh WP: Free WordPress Theme for Governments

GovFresh, a government and technology blog launched a new WordPress theme to protect and promote the use of open source software to governments. Government sites are usually left behind when it comes to site design and ui. Most of these sites looked as if it hasn’t been updated since 1999.

GovFresh tries to tackle these site problems by making a theme that is free for everyone to use. They know that many small cities don’t have the technology and budget to afford website consulting services and are therefore left behind.
