Check this out! It's New Hanover County's new Citizens in Action promo. I wish I had better hair in it, but it was really fun! I loved everyone else's responses. They all did such a great job!
What is the Citizens Academy? It's New Hanover County's way of educating curious people about county government. We are the first group to go through the course.
Personally, I am having a ball. I'm learning a lot from some really dedicated county workers, and I think all of the participants are enjoying themselves.
I like the fact that the group asks tough questions. I just observe for the most part, but some of these local activists are really involved! You have to admire that kind of tenacity from citizens who don't get paid to participate in local government.
Anyway, my thumbs up to the county. It's been a really great program. Our "graduation" is April 4th!
