Bosses Are You Checking On Your Communities And Leaders?

Neighbors, what’s going on in your neighborhoods, city, state, and government? Are you communicating with and telling your leaders what you want? Well, that is your job if you are not managing your elected hires then you are not doing your job as CITIZEN. Why would you hire someone and not manage them? Atlanta’s leaders have been working hard to dismantle Maynard Jackson’s Neighborhood Planning Units for over 20 years. NPUs give residents power and community wealth.

The original NPU Profile and Plan, for Black Community Wealth,

The first published NPU Plan for Atlanta was published by Former mayor, Maynard H. Jackson.

The selfish, careless, and typically unqualified leaders are spending their time attempting to dissolve NPUs while we pay them a handsome salary to do so. The problem is ours the citizens, we hire – elect candidates and then we do not reach out and tell them what we want. What manager hires an employee and does not train and manage them? Let’s be better managers of the people we hire – elect to represent and lead us. Good leaders know their constituencies and work alongside them to create change. If your leaders do not plan and implement with you they are not doing their job and you should replace them, asap with someone who will.

Check on your community, find out what’s going on, and what community planning is taking place, and participate, volunteer, and attend city council meetings in person or online or play a recent recording of a meeting. It only takes 90 Minutes A Month to check on your leaders to see that they are working on your behalf and see what you can do to move the needle forward. To find your local, state, and government representatives, Google and reach out to them, with your concerns and wants for your community, city, state, and country it is your right and responsibility as a citizen and as a BOSS.

Your Biggest and Best Investment Will Always Be To Your Community.

Community is one of your most important investments. Always Be In The Know about your community. And reach out to your leaders, city council, the mayor and commissioners and tell them what you want, that is why you elected them which was really a HIRE. You hired them to work on your behalf but some will not unless you tell them what you want and hold them accountable.

Do you know all of your representatives? You should, their salary is paid out of your taxes and we pay them MORE than most of us earn at our jobs. Boss Up and manage your elected hires by contacting them by email. Better yet if you can do a better job run for their positions. Volunteer in your community and get to know the constituency base and what they need. We will see you and if you are doing the work and showing up, we will vote for you. We are desperate for good leaders. And when you are ready run for a position and it may take two cycles to get in but if you are ready to serve you will stick it out, get more involved, master, and achieve the role you have trained for.

No longer are we willing to sit back and have people come to us and tell us they want to represent us. Going forward, candidates will have to do the work in our communities before we give them our votes. Great leadership will be mandatory from now on. If we continue to hire elect poor leadership we will continue to have these same problems. I am sad to say that the fault is ours for not doing our Due Diligence, research, and discovery about candidates. We live in a society that keeps us bogged down with debt, bills, and poorly paying jobs so we do not have time to attend city council meetings at 2 PM in the afternoon and that is why they plan it for that time. #BOSSUPSWATL
