By the end of July, there will 95 vacancies on city boards and commissions, and Mayor A C Wharton's office is hoping to fill many at a special event Friday night. The city is hosting "Get On Board," a campaign designed to attract new members for spots on boards, at MPACT Memphis (506 S. Main) on July 29th from 6 to 8 p.m.
“As I have said throughout my time in public service, our government is only as strong, accountable, and progressive as the citizens make it,” said Wharton.
