I was invited to attend a leadership meeting by Senator Tom Neuville and Representative Ray Cox in Lonsdale this evening. The majority of those in attendance were elected and appointed city, township, county and school officials.
The discussion was broad and covered many issues. Funding, the explosive population growth in our area and the challenges it brings and the need for cooperative efforts were themes throughout the evening.
I find it very beneficial to attend meetings of this nature to get a broader view of the challenges faced by elected officials as they strive to meet the needs of their respective constituents. It’s a tough job and I appreciate their efforts.
