It's a bird! It's a plane! It's the Minnesota State Fair!
This year you'll find the Cities Matter campaign in the same familiar booth in the Education Building, but with a whole new look and activity. We're dedicating our 12 days of fair goodness to promoting the value of city careers and encouraging the next generation of future leaders to check out opportunities that cities have to offer.
If you are visiting the fair this year, be sure to try out the new interactive quiz to discover your "superpower," learn more about city careers that can help you make a difference in your community, and of course say hi to League staff and board members working the booth.
The Cities Matter campaign was launched in 2009 by the League of Minnesota Cities to educate the public about cities and the services they provide. You can check out the Cities Matter website to see all-new content that features city staffers and elected officials talking about what it's really like to work in Minnesota cities. These city superheroes are the real deal!
Together we hope that the website and the booth are a dynamic duo that will bring some pow! into promoting local government careers and the important work that city officials do every day.
