Our favorite lifelong downtown resident Mary Alderman, and your intrepid blogger Jack LeVine have been selected for 2 of the seats in this years Citizen Leadership Academy. 25 seats were available, and there were over 60 applicants.
The academy is an 8 week, 10 session workshop to teach us how the City of Las Vegas actually works. We’ll get to tour the downtown, the sewage treatment plant, the KCLV tv studio, a fire station, regional justice center and jail, and lots of other things that we don’t normally get to see behind the scenes.
We’ll get to meet all the department managers and staff, city councilpersons, mayor and the people who actually run the city.
We’ll be doing a weekly post of what we learned, and passing on to our readers everything of interest.
