Chad Adams took his local government show on the road this week with half-day workshops in four cities: Wilmington, Raleigh/Durham, Charlotte and Asheville. Among the attendees at Wednesday’s Triangle event were department heads from Rockingham County, who were so impressed with the quality of the information and panelists, they registered six more colleagues for Friday’s Asheville workshop. The panels included experts from the Reason Foundation as well as current elected officials and city and county managers. The goal was to help community leaders find innovative, results-oriented approaches to governing. Topics included budgeting, privatization and merging, and performance management.
