Mentoring Program

The Strategic Mentoring Program utilizes retired elected officials to act as mentors to newly elected representatives, teaching them how to effectively govern, build coalitions and better reflect their constituencies. First implemented in 2012, it teaches newly elected how to:

  • Use the appointment process

  • Establish policy initiatives

  • Reach out to constituencies

  • Create model ordinances and resolutions

  • Hold town halls, and

  • Increase government efficiency.
