82 ways to get involved in Local (city) Government!

Posted March 15th, 2017 @ 7:49 AM by

According to the city website, 10% of city committee seats are vacant! Want to get involved in local government? Apply!

I’ve tried, the mayor won’t appoint me. Maybe you’ll have better luck. Tho I should warn you, if you live on the near east side in the 2nd (Ledell Zellers) or 6th (Marsha Rummel) districts, it will probably be tough to get appointed. Apparently, he likes vacancies better than us near east siders.  If you interested in applying, info is here.  These are the vacancies the website lists as of today.
