“Who Does What? Defining Proper Roles for Staff and Elected Officials”
The most effective public agencies often share key traits in common. Among these is a solid history and practice of clearly defined and well-understood roles for the key players on the agency’s team. When staff and elected officials approach their different jobs with the knowledge and appreciation of what the other does, as well what they, themselves, should be doing (or not doing), it’s easier for everyone to row in the same direction and move the agency’s priorities and agenda forward.
