Public Officials and the Community
Location: In Person
Relationships are the foundation of our community, how we treat each other can strengthen or weaken the communities we live in. Public officials, whether elected or appointed, are able to influence their communities in significant ways, but also open themselves to public scrutiny. While significant differences of opinion between the public and its officials can be expected, conflict that becomes destructive or personal can have lasting effects on the community and individuals involved. When that happens, communities risk losing the participation of thoughtful and capable citizens who would otherwise be engaged. This conversation is an opportunity to explore shared values around how we want to treat public officials and what kind of relationship we expect or hope for.
Join us for a conversation on Public Officials and the Community.
