Leadership Jefferson: Governance

This session is for members of the Leadership Jefferson Class of 2020. Applications for the class will open on June 1, 2019. A major challenge every community faces is trying to inform citizens about government. Many perceive the political structure to be complicated and beyond their reach; the program works to give the participants an up close look at our parish's political structure to demystify and educate everyone on local government. The highlight of the day is when participants are able to take a jail tour and see what life is really like behind bars.
