Since finding my way into government 15 years ago, I’ve had the opportunity to experience many facets of its operations. I’m so impressed by the commitment of the people who serve our communities—but, I also know we can do better. You know it. I know it. It’s okay to say it.
Many times, what stands in our way is the same thing that frustrates our residents: bureaucracy. We are the ones with the power to change it. It’s time for a shift. It’s time we stop accepting the things we can’t change and start changing the things we can’t accept. And, we have to acknowledge the uncomfortable truth to do it.
