Podcast: All Things Local
I speak with public service researchers and workers across communities about topics and issues affecting their local towns, villages, cities, and neighborhoods. Hear ideas and challenges from people working in local government and nonprofit organizations. Brought to you by the School of Public and Global Affairs at Northern Illinois University.
Description: On this first episode, I am joined by Paul LaLonde, Vice President of Operations and Human Resources for the Voluntary Action Center. Paul graduated with an MPA from Northern Illinois University in 2009. He discussed his career path in public service, as well as his organization’s role in providing public transportation across five counties in Northern Illinois. Paul notes that transit "is a perfect example of governance in action" as VAC works with all levels of government.
