Recovery.gov looking for a mascot

The website that tracks stimulus spending is looking for a mascot and the Recovery Board wants the public's input.

The folks behind Recovery.gov posted a message on Facebook in May soliciting submissions for a mascot "that truly embodies our mission and overall purpose." They are looking for submissions that show "creativity and ingenuity," so if you're interested send images or written descriptions to newmedia@ratb.gov by July 1st.

In case you're wondering, the Recovery Board is hardly the first agency to establish a mascot. It's just one more thing that sports teams and federal agencies have in common.
