Coun­cil­man sur­vey­ing young At­lantans

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution - - COUNTY BY COUNTY - PAMELA MILLER FOR THE AJC

Post 1 At-Large City Coun­cil­man Michael Ju­lian Bond has sent out a sur­vey se­ries to learn more about the civic en­gage­ment of young At­lantans. The sur­vey, which tar­gets peo­ple ages 18 to 39, fo­cuses on com­mu­nity par­tic­i­pa­tion and in­for­ma­tion gath­er­ing, civic knowl­edge and ac­ces­si­bil­ity, and at­ti­tudes about lo­cal gov­ern­ment.

“I was hear­ing anec­dotes where young peo­ple con­fided in me that they felt dis­cour­aged. They say that their voice isn’t be­ing heard and their con­cerns aren’t be­ing taken se­ri­ously,” Bond said. “My goal with this sur­vey is to en­cour­age their en­gage­ment and find out what mat­ters to them.”

Bond also hopes to learn more about sur­vey re­spon­dents’ knowl­edge of city of­fi­cials and re­sources, their thoughts on how to im­pact com­mu­nity de­ci­sions, the ex­tent to which they en­gage with their com­mu­ni­ties, and any other thoughts they have about city gov­ern­ment and ways of mak­ing an im­pact.
