Last But Not least we talked to Howard Franklin one of Gerogias most sought after political strtegists. He came on to talk about his program Young Gamechangers which is a program through GeorgiaForward, a statewide non-partisan, non-profit working to get Georgia’s leaders to tackle our policy challenges with collaboration and vision. This is the first year of the program – brought together 25 innovative, young (under the age of 40) Georgians to solve a specific problem. The Gamechangers work across multiple sectors of business, law, health, non-profit, arts & culture, education and urban development. As part of our work on statewide prosperity, we were asked to work with Americus and Sumter County to re-vision their future as a vibrant 21st century rural community. The Program started in November 2012 and will wrap up on April 26, 2013 in Americus, and you can learn more at http://georgiaforward.org/young-gamechangers.
