LEAD program explores city government, services
Goodyear, Ariz. (Oct. 30, 2018) – Residents curious about how their local city works are invited to apply for Goodyear’s next Leadership Enrichment And Development (LEAD), a free 12-week class that dives into how services are provided and government operates.
“The idea is to get our community members involved,” said Mayor Georgia Lord. “After completing the class, hopefully these graduates will want to continue with their civic engagement by applying to be a board member, or even run for council.”
Sessions are on consecutive Tuesdays, 6-8 p.m., starting January 8 and include dinner, networking and instruction. Class size is limited to 40 participants. Applicants must live or work in the city of Goodyear and be at least 18 years of age.
The 2019 LEAD application will be available on Nov. 13 at www.goodyearaz.gov/lead.
