Before 2030, Polk County will have a comprehensive system of government that is effective, efficient, diverse and responsive to the basic needs of its citizens.
The Government Advisory Team’s mission is to bring together all levels of local government to create more awareness, cooperation and support of the long term Vision for Polk County. This includes providing review and guidance on both foreseen and unforeseen opportunities that potentially impact the organization’s objectives and the work of its various LEAD Teams as established by the Polk Vision Board of Directors. The Government Team also works to effectively engage citizens by producing the Leadership Exchange Series which includes educational offerings such as the Mayors Roundtable, State of the County, Legislative Warm-Up, and other topically relevant workshops.
The 2018-2019 Leadership Exchange Series was made possible through funding by AT&T, Citizens Bank & Trust, and Duke Energy.
The Government Advisory Team is a critical cog in the Polk Vision wheel. Working with the other teams allows the group to advocate on issues that impact the county. The members are a cross-section of dedicated leaders throughout Polk County with the common goal of making positive changes to the quality of life of our residents. It has been an honor to serve as Co-Chair the past 2 years and I look forward to continuing to identify the challenges, opportunities and goals that will showcase Polk County to the rest of the state and country.Matt Mucci, Regional Director, External Affairs, AT&T
