Go behind the scenes of local government with the Henrico Citizens Academy

Signups for the free 15-hour program are now underway.

From the County of Henrico:

Henrico County’s local government has been operated under a County Manager form of government since 1934. Only eight individuals have served as County Manager since then, which has greatly contributed to Henrico’s historically stable operation.

John Vithoulkas, Henrico’s current County Manager, acts as the administrative head of the county. Together with his five Deputy County Managers, Vithoulkas oversees a large budget and a wide range of employees and projects. It’s also his responsibility to keep the Board of Supervisors and the public informed about the county’s activities.

One truly unique way Henrico keeps its residents in touch with government activities is through the Henrico Citizens Academy. It’s a one-of-a-kind program that gives county residents an up-close and personal look at how the county is run. “To my knowledge, this is the only program available for citizens to meet so many representatives in a locality the size of Henrico in such a short time,” says John Vithoulkas about the Academy.

The Henrico Citizens Academy is a free 15-hour program designed to give 35 residents from all over the county a comprehensive look at county operations and services. The ultimate goal is to encourage residents to become more engaged citizens.
