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, https://radar.auctr.edu/islandora/object/auc.109%3A0011.
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 https://myreps.datamade.us/ 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.
