Leadership Garrett County focuses on local government

Local government and discussions with County leaders was on the agenda for members of the second class of Leadership Garrett County. Earlier this month, the group visited the Garrett County Courthouse in which government programming and content was at the forefront of the agenda. As part of the program, each class includes meetings with county leaders and discussions.
