Partners in Governance 2018: Achieving Balance in Governance in the Post-Truth Era, April 10

MSBA is co-sponsoring this event along with Missouri Municipal League, the Institute of Public Policy at the University of Missouri, the Missouri Association of Counties and FOCUS-St. Louis.

This year’s event will examine issues facing locally elected leaders and public employees in the modern political climate some are referring to as the “Post-Truth Era.” How do government employees and elected officials best navigate and implement their duties in a political culture in which debate is increasingly framed around appeals to emotion rather than connections to detailed policy? When talking points garner more support than factual rebuttals, how do we have honest debate on the issues?
