What's the best way to make local governments in NE Ohio more efficient and collaborative? Why by holding a contest with a cash prize, of course. Nothing like a little incentive to bring out the best ideas. At least that's the thinking of the regional grantmaking organization. The Fund for our Economic Future is about to give away some $300,000 to the three best proposals as determined by popular vote. Hear from the finalists and hear our a panel of judges pick them apart. Monday at nine on the Sound of Ideas.
Please follow our community discussion rules when composing your comments.
Thank you for the opportunity to present our proposal. (Ashland County Combined Dispatch Upgrade) As you could probably tell, I do not do a lot of public speaking. So I hope I didn’t um you to death. Still, I appreciate your efforts to get the word out on this very worthwile service that the folks at www.EfficientGovNow.org are providing and we are glad to be a part of it.
Bill--you did great and did not “um” us to death. Thanks so much to you and the other finalists for your time and for going along with our three-minute rule. It was great to have you on the program!
