Take a turn at being a commissioner
For some residents, paying attention to what their local governments do isn’t high on their priority list. Others are watching the government more closely, especially when it comes to certain issues. In Alachua County, commissioners and staffers are reaching out to the community this summer, to be part of what they call, “Community Conversations”. Communications coordinator for Alachua County Mark Sexton says people can register to be part of the conversation, and he talked with WUFT-FM’s Tom Krynski about the sessions.
