Two Goodyear city officials selected to high-profile boards
The city of Goodyear will be well represented on two high-profile boards, helping to provide a voice in decisions of policy and economic security.
City Council members Wally Campbell and Joanne Osborne have been appointed to serve on the Governor’s Board of Examiners of Nursing Care Institution Administrators and Assisted Living Facility Managers and National League of Cities’ Human Development Steering Committee in Washington, respectively.
As a member of the Board of Examiners of Nursing Care Institution Administrators and Assisted Living Facility Managers, Campbell will support the mission of the licensing board in protecting the health, welfare, and safety of Arizona citizens. The board also helps to make sure standards and education requirements are met.
On the Human Development Committee, Osborne will help in developing policy positions on issues involving social services, children and learning, poverty and income support, employment and workforce development, and equal opportunity. The committee also works on developing policies involving Social Security and seniors, individuals with disabilities, public health care, mental health parity, and immigration reform.
Last year, Osborne was recognized for her leadership on the committee by receiving the Bronze Level of Leadership based on earning 16 credits in five core areas of municipal leadership: Personal growth and development, leading effective governance, effective communications and media relations, building communities through inspiration and empowerment and leading innovation and managing change.
The National League of Cities is dedicated to helping city leaders build better communities, and is a resource and advocate for 19,000 American cities, towns and villages.
Goodyear Mayor Georgia Lord said the appointments will help to support two important issues in the city and country.
“Expanding healthcare facilities, providing quality care and having programs in place for citizens experiencing hardships are key components that help attract citizens to live here. It is important we strive for and maintain the highest of standards in those areas in the future so our residents can enjoy quality of life,” Mayor Lord said. “We’re proud to have a voice on a state level as Goodyear continues to grow and learn from other board members’ input.”
Campbell’s terms will expire at the pleasure of Arizona Governor Jan Brewer.
