I was honored to rub elbows this week with some of the most innovative leaders in state and local government at the re:Public XI event in Tucson, Arizona. Once I made it past the door of this invitation-only event, I found a dedicated group of experienced public servants representing communities across America.

The event featured two days of thought-provoking speakers and industry networking. A final panel of MPA candidates concluded the event on Tuesday with a refreshing look at the next generation in public service. After some fun talking about generational differences, both the students and the audience of well-experienced public officials gave each other thoughtful advice for achieving great things together in public service.
