Mayor's Neighborhood University
Dear Community Leader,
Last year we launched the Mayor's Neighborhood University with 65 Tampanians
in the inaugural session from a pool of 154 applications. I was overwhelmed
with the response and could not be more pleased with the interest from
citizens who want to get involved and work with their government to make
Tampa the best place to live, work and play.
During this inaugural 12-week course, the class was able to experience the
City of Tampa Administration on a whole new level while also cultivating
leadership skills and being educated on Tampa as a whole from their class
mates. It is my goal that through the Neighborhood University, and our
investment in each class member, that will be able to help current and
future neighborhood leaders while also building stronger relationships
between my Administration and the people. After all, this is your city.
Although the second session starting February 1, 2014 is full, we are
accepting applications for the third session starting after Labor Day 2014.
Please see the link below to apply. For any questions, please contact
Shannon Edge, Manager of the Mayor's Neighborhood University (813) 274-8336
or by e-mail at Shannon.email@example.com.
My commitment to our neighborhoods extends to growing the next generation of
community leaders so that they can continue the progress we have made. By
you applying to participate in my Neighborhood University, you are joining
me and helping the future generations to come.
Bob Buckhorn, Mayor
City of Tampa
