Day 8 – The Citizens Academy


















Today was the start of an 8 week long course I am taking. Every Wednesday evening I will be attending the City of Sanford Citizens Academy. By the time I “graduate” I will hopefully be very well informed on how our city works and all the ways us citizens can get involved.

After tonight’s class I can already say that Sanford really strives to be an “open city”, approachable and transparent to anyone who wants to be involved. We got to meet the city manager, talked about risk management and human resources and about the duties and function of the city clerk.

My class mates are awesome, great people and some familiar faces who all want to become better citizens.

More will follow in November in a separate post where I will be summarizing what I have learned…
