Tim Elinski Interview — Podcast January 23, 2017

The Example of Cottonwood, Arizona: Why Transparency and Citizen Participation Are the Keys to Effective Government. Tim Elinski, newly elected mayor of  Cottonwood, joins Democratic Perspective’s Mike Cosentino and Steve Williamson for a discussion of the challenges facing small town governments in Arizona. If you want to hear how a genuine commitment to open and transparent government can help ensure that the people’s needs are served, this is the show for you. In an age when many governments seem to have gone into business for themselves, Tim’s presentation serves as a textbook example of how government representatives ought to approach their duties to the people who’ve elected them.
