When former Miramar Mayor Lori Moseley became president of the Florida League of Cities, she envisioned a platform that would allow cities to better engage with the next generation of leaders. This would include discussions with representatives from the Millennial generation, a study to determine how Millennials perceive municipal government and finally recommendations on how to better engage with Millennial citizens.
Following through on her plans, Past Presidents Moseley and Matt Surrency, mayor, City of Hawthorne, held discussions with Millennials. A report of those discussions, findings from a focus group study and recommendations on how cities can better engage and communicate with their millennial residents are included in a series of articles from Quality Cities magazine developed over a year-long review of this issue.
These articles, along with several articles from Governing
magazine, are available for viewing and download to the right.
