Thank You for Your Public Water Meeting Facilitation Efforts
This past week I received a letter from Jackie McClaskey, Secretary of the Kansas Department of Agriculture, and Tracey Streeter, Director of the Kansas Water Office. In this letter, they applauded the efforts of numerous personnel from K-State Research and Extension and the Institute for Civic Discourse and Democracy who provided much needed facilitation at their public water goals meetings.
We sometimes wonder if our work is appreciated. The letter, which can be found at this link, indicates just how much the Kansas Department of Agriculture and Kansas Water Office appreciated this effort. They were so appreciative, that they sent the letter to President Schulz, Mr. Kenny Wilk of the Kansas Board of Regents, and several respected and influential legislators.
Facilitating public discussions is important work, and it is greatly appreciated, especially by me. Thank you for your effort in this process.
Director, K-State Research and Extension
