Want to change your community or just understand how it works? Interested in running for a local public office? Know that it takes action to be part of the solution? Local Government 101 is a short course that explores local government (cities, counties, special districts, and school districts) with special attention to the San Joaquin Valley. Each week a panel of experts will explain how local government operates and the policy options it has regarding economic development, education, public safety, land use, and water.
