Councilman Shelley Appointed to Good Government Initiative

City of Homestead Councilman Stephen Shelley has been selected to be one of the few elected officials who will participate in the Good Government Initiative Class of 2012.
The Good Government Initiative, which was founded by former Miami Dade-County Commissioner Katy Sorenson, provides a venue for elected officials to develop their skills as excellent leaders and to hone their ability to practice good governance. During the four month program, which is facilitated by the University of Miami, participants will work with current and former elected and appointed officials, academics, journalists, community leaders, and lobbyists for an open exploration and conversation on a variety of governance issues.

The group of elected officials from Monroe, Miami-Dade, Broward and Palm Beach counties that was selected for this year’s program will receive more than 60 hours in training about the nuts and bolts of government in South Florida. The ultimate goal for the Initiative is to help elected officials develop into thoughtful, effective leaders in the community, while giving them the opportunity to develop a supportive cohort of their peers and connections with established community leaders and experts.

By participating in the program, Councilman Shelley hopes to further enhance his professional education and development in an effort to become the best elected official he can be for the residents of the City of Homestead.

Councilman Shelley, who is also a graduate of the Florida League of Cities Institute for Elected Municipal Officials and the Florida League of Cities Advanced Institute for Elected Municipal Officials, says he is looking forward to being exposed to a variety of government and community issues and to learning new skills that will allow him to become a better representative for his constituents.
