Participate in your local government! 
Seeking residents for County advisory boards
Government works best when there is strong and diverse community participation. 

Public advisory boards, commissions and councils serve as excellent institutions for empowering resident involvement, training grounds for ascending leaders, and great opportunities for people wanting to serve. 

I'm looking for you to join me in serving our County!
