July 2022 Spotlight

The City Clerk’s Office Presents the Monthly Board Member Spotlight:. Why would you encourage someone in the community to apply to be on a board, committee, or commission?. I would encourage folks to serve on city/county boards to do the work of dismantling systematic oppression. When I took my first racial equity training in 2015, one of the presenters stated "when Power is invisible Racism thrives" this phrase changed my perspective on the work I can do as an individual. I believed I could help dismantle racism in my own local systems and institutions through the work on these boards. I was able to bring my areas of expertise and my own personal insight into actual places of Power where decisions are made that may affect a large group of people. serving on a board allows me to put my own personal imprint in our local government.
