Bobbi Nance

By now you have probably heard John Oliver’s “Last Week Tonight” segment on special districts where he proclaimed them, among other things, ghost governments. On this week’s episode we have two administrators that work for special districts to explain the benefits of this unique form of government. Cassandra Ulven from Tualatin Valley Fire & Rescue in the Portland, OR metro region and Bobbi Nance from the Park District of Oak Park, IL lend their perspective and expertise.
