Dear White Women


Feb 21, 2023

If you’ve been following us on our journey through (third grade) civics, you’ll know that we’ve covered the federal government/civics on a national level in our Civics 101 episode, which was Episode 203, and then focused on state government in Civics 102, which was Episode 205. We’re now here to round out our basic civics knowledge with Civics 103 - everything - and more, if we’re being honest - that you wanted to know about your local city/county/municipal governments. Let’s jump right into this.

 

What to listen for:

  • Different structures of local government - like city managers vs strong mayors (which one are you living in!?) - that you can vote for or see appointed

  • All the other roles that make our daily lives happen - from sheriffs and police and fire to coroners, parks and rec, economic development, public works, planning, and more

  • Ways that we discovered we can get more involved in our local governments - and what YOU can do too!
