[ARCHIVED] Councilwoman Fairclough Graduates from University of Miami's Good Government Initiative

Former Miami-Dade County Commissioner and District 8 Representative Katy Sorenson honored Homestead Councilwoman Patricia Fairclough for graduating from the Good Government Initiative Program.

The Good Government Initiative, which was founded by Mrs. Sorenson, provides a venue for elected officials to develop their skills as excellent leaders and to hone their ability to practice good governance. During the four-month program, which is facilitated by the University of Miami, participants work with current and former elected and appointed officials, academics, journalists, community leaders, and lobbyists for an open exploration and conversation on a variety of governance issues.

“Sixteen elected officials enrolled this year in this program,” said Mrs. Sorenson, speaking at a special presentation during February’s council meeting. “The interaction between these officials makes it special and meaningful. Anything I can do to continue that camaraderie is very important. Having Patricia was a wonderful addition to our class.”

Upon receiving her certificate of completion, Councilwoman Fairclough shared a few words.“I want to thank former Commissioner Sorenson for her vision and forward thinking in designing a course to build the political capacity of newly elected officials. I am proud to join my colleague Vice-Mayor Stephen Shelley in serving as a graduate of the University of Miami’s Good Government Initiative. The knowledge I obtained will serve me well in the City of Homestead and enable me to be a more effective councilperson.”
