Professional local government managers improve the quality of life in their communities every day.

COMMUNITY HEROES

If you look around your community, you’ll find people using their talents each day to improve our quality of life. Some are in very public roles—like police officers or teachers. Others keep the roads maintained, collect recycling, beautify our parks and public spaces. We’re capturing profiles of these community heroes who work with professional city, town, and county managers to make Life, Well Run.
