As the first-ever CIO of the New York State Senate, Andrew Hoppin demonstrated a commitment to open government and citizen services.

Shortly after taking the job in February 2009, Hoppin established Twitter, Facebook, and Tumblr pages for the state senate, and his team created websites to solicit public input for closing New York's deficit and the transportation agency's budget gap. He gave Webmail to senators and the state senate website lets the public search for and comment on bills that have been introduced. Hoppin previously built online communities for the 2004 presidential campaign of John Kerry, supported development of the Drupal Web platform, and co-created CoLab, a NASA group that fosters collaboration among the space agency, the private sector, and the public.

Hoppin left the New York State Senate position in January to form open government consultancy New Amsterdam Ideas, where he's worked with clients like New York City and the state of New York.
