    ​Loved this quote from Brent Runyon, Providence Preservation Society...
    "Well if we didn't believe the public could have an impact, I don't know what we'd do with our time," said PPS Executive Director Brent Runyon on GoLocal LIVE. "We believe in the democratic process that's been set up to allow the public to have a say, and we'd hope the commission members are reading the emails and listening to people."

    Cheers for a great New Year!

    A great quote and a great sentiment. With all the challenges facing nonprofits and public agencies today, it becomes tempting to go through the motions of taking public opinion into account while really doing what agency staff and management think best. It takes dedication to truly make public opinion part of the decision-making process.
