In its continuous focus and commitment to engaging citizens, Leon County will held its first Citizen Engagement Series session of the new year and sixth overall on Thursday, Jan. 31, at 6 p.m., at the Four Points by Sheraton Downtown Tallahassee, 316 West Tennessee St.

The session entitled, “Leon County Tourism Work$: Attracting Visitors, Creating Jobs,” offered citizens an opportunity to gain greater insight into the Tourism Development Division’s recent and continued success in attracting visitors to the Big Bend area through extensive marketing of local destinations and attractions.

During the session, activities will included a high adrenaline jeopardy game presenting the many functions and operations of the tourism division, a collaborative discussion with leading partners Steve Adams of Shula's 347 and Front Porch, Carrie McNeill of Cole Courture, Russell Daws of Tallahassee Museum, and Marc Bauer of Hunter and Harp Hospitality, in the local tourism industry and an interactive exercise that invited citizens to market Leon County to the world.

The series, authorized by the Board of County Commissioners in August 2011 as part of Leon County’s “People Focused, Performance Driven” culture, offers citizens the chance to gain greater insight into County government operations and engages them in various issues facing the community.
