ELGL Members Celebrate Local Government in Forbes

Hat tip to Kare Anderson for featuring ELGL members in her recent post – 6 Ways to Improve Your Town Even If You Can’t Impact Presidential Politics – on Forbes.

Here are six success stories that brightened my day, and that your city might want to adapt and adopt.

Making an appearance in the post are:

  • Kent Wyatt, City of Tigard, OR
  • Kylie Bayer-Fertterer, Tualatin Hills Park and Recreation District
  • Matt Horn, City of Geneva, NY
  • Rae Buckley, Town of Chapel Hill, NC
