Public advisory boards, commissions and councils serve as excellent institutions
for empowering resident involvement, training grounds for ascending leaders,
and great opportunities for people wanting to serve.
I'm looking for you to join me in serving our County! [Actually these boards exist to make the members feel they actually have some power to change things in their respective venues- appointees are not to publically state opinions contrary to the County line - only politically correct citizens/non citizens need apply - Save El Sobrante]
