Why one of our Napa citizens decided to join a Commission

Friends- We need your help. Have you thought about getting involved with your city government? We have several Boards and Commissions you can be a part of on a regular basis.

Below, Commission Member Rodney Ready shares why he decided to get involved.

"When I first learned of Napa's Citizen Academy, I knew I would attend, as I have always been interested in government. Each session was hosted by Napa's city manager with presentations made by city department heads and their staff. In addition, three council members including the Mayor also appeared before the class. At the Academy's conclusion, I gained a thorough understanding of how Napa's government is organized and functions and was very impressed by the city's leadership and capable staff.

As a result of this experience, I decided to apply for an opening on the city's Cultural Heritage Commission. In that role, my duties relate well to my profession as a real estate appraiser and to my interest in Napa history. In the fall of 2016, I was appointed to Napa's Cultural Heritage Commission.

I urge any Napa resident with an interest in civic affairs to attend Napa's Citizen Academy. Napa will be a better place because of your efforts."

Review the vacancies and submit your application here. The deadline to apply is Friday, May 26, at 5pm!
