Let’s be inspired. I think we can do this here.
I saw this post recently – An Adult Civics Hour and think we can do the same thing Crozet. And Albemarle. Based on the Facebook responses, we’re interested.*
I’m thinking of doing this at Crozet Mudhouse to start. Maybe an initial meeting to set the stage.
Topics? Maybe set a monthly agenda?
Note: This is about local politics, but it’s not partisan political; leave that stuff at home.
If you’re interested, please tell me here.
How the heck does local government even work?
City Council, School Board, Pierce County Council, it can all be so confusing. Maybe we learned this in high school, but let’s face it- most of us have forgetten it all.
Join us for a night with Washington State Teacher of the Year Nate Bowling and Metro Parks Commissioner Erik Hanberg. They will be breaking down how local government works and how we can impact the decisions that are made in our communities.
One of the goals for MoveToTacoma.com this year is to help Tacomans feel more educated and empowered about how local government works (instead of confused, mad, or disempowered/hopeless…)
*I’m going to be moving away from Facebook. They are awful..
