What are Your Community's 2009 Priorities?

2009 is upon us. Several week ago, I asked local government leaders across the County about their priorities, challenges, and opportunities, and how we can work together for the betterment of our citizens.

Now I hope to hear directly from residents about what is happening in YOUR COMMUNITY.
