You can read Stacy Becker's article here (scroll to page 5).  There's also a great article on Page 1 by LaRhae Knatterud, who has one of the coolest titles in America:  Director of Aging Transformation at Minnesota's Department of Human Services.

Stacy, who is the Citizens League's director on this project advises local and regional governments, non-profits, foundations, and private companies on issues of economic development, community building, and innovation. She was the budget director for the City and County of San Francisco.  She also served in the administrations of Saint Paul mayors Jim Scheibel and Norm Coleman. 

Stacy was the first non-engineer to hold the title of Saint Paul Public Works Director. She streamlined the department, improved its credit rating, improved citizen participation, and resolved long-standing controversies around key infrastructure projects. Becker also served as the director of research and development for the Saint Paul Police Department and as budget director for the City of Saint Paul.  She has degrees from Macalester College, Harvard’s John F. Kennedy School of Government and the London School of Economics, where she was a Bush Leadership Fellow.

How the Public Can Participate

The League is now bringing the project to the public.  Stacy will be leading several citizen workshops.  Learn more about them and how to sign up here.
