Public administration consultant
In the last scene of this simulation, the mayor and the public health director present two models for involving the public in discussions about the PCB situation. The mayor favors a town hall approach, while the public health director prefers the consolidation conference approach.
As you did in the previous Riverbend City discussion question, assume the role of a public administration consultant. Write a memo with your recommendations on how best to involve the public in this discussion. Your recommendations may align with the mayor’s preferences, the public health director’s preference, or a combination of the two—or perhaps your recommendations reflect an entirely different approach. Explain your recommendations carefully, and support your recommendations with relevant readings and theories.
