LAHARPE — An engaged citizenry is necessary for communities to survive in today’s America, Megan Gilliland contends.

“If more people are involved in local government, we’re going to have more trust,” said Gilliland, a communications and education manager for the League of Kansas Municipalities. “We believe cities are able to survive, thrive and grow when residents are engaged and participate in the decision-making process.”

Participation isn’t limited to running for city council, she added. It can come through simple conversations with neighbors, volunteering for civic events or simply attending functions around town.
