Excerpt from the editorial Viewpoint in today's Sunday Register: We're hopeful enrollment in the Firelands College government leadership academy exceeds expectations and that every local government will send at least one representative to learn more about how to make our region stronger, better and more responsive to the needs of those who are governed.
We're hopeful, too, that this opportunity will bring out anyone who has ever considered running for elected office and spur them to get their names on a future election ballot. Becoming part of the solution and bringing about better local government is a worthy goal.
So, not just one thumb or two thumbs up; here's a big hardy high-five to BGSU Firelands College for developing the government leadership academy.
