#ACYPLMacedonia in Florida -- Transparency Roundtable Discussion at Seminole City Hall with Mayor Leslie Waters

I was honored to be the State Host of the delegation of Macedonian political leaders for the American Council of Young Political Leaders (ACYPL) in December, organizing a 6-day visit in December.

We enjoyed observing the Seminole City Council meeting. (see http://jainmacedonia.blogspot.mk/2018/01/acyplmacedonia-in-florida-seminole-city.html

The next day we returned for a Transparency Roundtable discussion with Mayor Leslie Waters, City Manager Ann Tonie-Deal, Human Resources Director Harry Kyne, and Community Development Director Mark Ely.

We learned about the organizational structure of city government (for a city of 18,000), discussed economic development issues, transparency in budgeting, the process of awarding contracts, putting in place anti-corruption measures, and more about "government in the sunshine."

We had a very productive session, and we thank Mayor Waters and the city administrators who met with us.
