Former County Commissioner Katy Sorenson announced in the Miami Herald today, the launch of The Good Government Initiative. She said:
The Good Government Initiative will provide a venue for early-career elected officials throughout the South Florida region to develop leadership skills and to hone their ability to practice good governance. It will provide a forum for training, for conversations without political consequence, a laboratory for officials to consider, to ask questions and to be exposed to a range of opinions and information. Participants will work with current and former elected and appointed officials and other government practitioners, academics, journalists, community leaders and others, as well as a cohort of fellow early-career officials.
The inaugural class will include 25 early-career elected officials from Broward, Miami-Dade, Monroe and Palm Beach counties.
Funding for the initiative comes from the Knight Foundation and it has the support of the University of Miami and the Miami Foundation.
