Live in Fayetteville? Need something to take your mind off the constant onslaught of White House crazy
? Want to get involved in city government? Now's your chance!
Fayetteville Flyer reports
that the city of Fayetteville is looking for 16 volunteers
to fill empty seats
on eight different boards and commissions
, including slots on the Advertising the Promotion Commission, the Civil Service Commission, the Fayetteville Public Library Board of Trustees and the Planning Commission.
While being a member of the Fayetteville Planning Commission or Library Board is not likely to be jet setting or glamorous, every political career has to start somewhere, sons and daughters. God knows we need selfless folks willing to get off the bench and push for a better tomorrow.
Applicants must be a registered voter living in the city limits of Fayetteville.
Applications can be mailed or delivered to the Fayetteville City Clerk's office or emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org. Deadline is 5 p.m. Feb. 24. You can download an application here.
