Top 10 Primer: What Local Elected Officials Need to Know about Public Health and Social Services

Friday, October 9, 2020

Being an effective local elected official requires a basic understanding of what your local government agencies do. The public health and social services agencies are two public agencies that are touch points for many of the people in your communities. Their services include connecting people to jobs, immunizing children, inspecting restaurants, and making sure your drinking water is safe. They protect both young and old from abuse and neglect; they engage a multitude of community volunteers in advisory boards and committees who penetrate deeply into the fabric of your towns, counties, and regions.
