Congratulations are most definitely in order for Brian Footer, who is pursuing his MPA at the Robert F. Wagner Graduate School of Public Service: The online network GovLoop and the National Association of Schools of Public Affairs and Administration (NASPAA) have awarded him third place for his essay, "Local Government Grant Program, " which suggests a new grant program that would make funds available to help communities that miss out on much-needed assistance in these fiscally pinched times.
"I believe government's inherent social value is establishing services essential to provide basic human needs," wrote Footer, whose essay was among the top three winners chosen after a review, by a panel of judges, of more than 1,700 entries submitted by graduate students around the country.
"This, however," he went on, "is not a mandate for government to deliver services. Rather, government should be a coordinator of parties and resources, and no one understands the unique demands of each geographic community better than local government."
Brian's honor includes a $1,000 scholarship.
