Are You Ready For 2013 NorCo Citizens' Academy?

Counties are the least sexy of all municipal governments ... until a bridge collapses. Though called the forgotten government, it has more impact on your day-to-day life than you might think. The 22 people who graduated from Northampton County's first Citizens’ Academy last year were shocked by what they learned. Two of them, Christen Borso and Deb Hunter, are now running for County Council themselves.

Fueled by last year's success, a second annual Citizens' Academy will start on September 9. It's an 11-week Wednesday night program focused on the county jail, Juvenile Justice Center, the 911 Center and Gracedale. It will include presentations from the courts, human services, parks and recreation, and fiscal operations. Graduates are asked to serve as a volunteer at one of the counties programs or facilities, or on one of its many Authorities, Boards, and Commissions.

To participate, you must live in the County and be willing to attend all sessions.

Enrollment is limited to 25, with the deadline for registration on August 16, 2013 You can get download that here, and mail to the Department of Administration, County of Northampton, 669 Washington St., Easton, Pa. 18042, Attention: Tom Harp.

For more information contact Tom Harp, Director of Administration at 610-559-3192 or at tharp@northamptoncounty.org.

Another round of the Bullshit Propaganda University. They learned a lot. A lot of what they were intended to learn by the bureaucrats and pols.

A lot of nonsense.
