Obtaining support from local governments

  • Steps you can take:

    • Work with local partners to identify what local officials will be supportive and beneficial to your program.

    • Develop messages or talking points that will resonate with your local officials and explain why they should support your program.

    • Determine who should reach out to targeted officials.

    • Make initial outreach via email or phone to introduce the program and ask for support, using your talking points.

    • Invite officials to relevant events/meetings so they can learn first-hand about what you’re trying to accomplish and visibly show their support.

    • Keep officials on invitation lists and reach out regularly to keep them abreast of program progress.

Government Support

  • Examples of steps taken to earn support from local government officials for Cities for Life:

    • Identified influential officials, legislators and community leaders.

    • Determined the best messenger and message to introduce the program to each official (e.g., reaching the mayor through one of the Steering Committee members).

    • Introduced the program and asked for his or her support in initial outreach.

    • Introduced the program publicly at a local City Council meeting, reaching the mayor and all councilors simultaneously in a public forum.

    • Held one-on-one meetings with the mayor and city councilors.

    • Invited officials to all Cities for Life events; included them in the Community Action Team and sent frequent updates on program progress.

    • Engaged officials to serve as spokespeople as appropriate.
