2 Very Vintage Vegas residents chosen for the "Citizen Leadership Academy"

Our favorite lifelong downtown resident Mary Alderman, and your intrepid blogger Jack LeVine have been selected for 2 of the seats in this years Citizen Leadership Academy. 25 seats were available, and there were over 60 applicants.

The academy is an 8 week, 10 session workshop to teach us how the City of Las Vegas actually works. We'll get to tour the downtown, the sewage treatment plant, the KCLV tv studio, a fire station, regional justice center and jail, and lots of other things that we don't normally get to see behind the scenes.

We'll get to meet all the department managers and staff, city councilpersons, mayor and the people who actually run the city.

We'll be doing a weekly post of what we learned, and passing on to our readers everything of interest.

I am really looking forward to this
new learning experience you and I will be going through. Hopefully we will gain some insight into the
"inner workings" of our city government. Then we can pass that on and make it beneficial to our friends and neighbors. If more of us will band together, this great neighborhood we so love can become even better. MJ
