Discussions about all things community engagement and civic data
by NRC on December 19, 2016
On a chilly winter's day
Were many things in Santa's sleigh,
Even a little Poetry
From your friends at NRC!
- A Limerick By Jenn Roche -
There once was a survey sent out
To citizens, it went all about
Results came in
With smiles and grins
Responses the City would tout!
- A Rhyme By Tom Miller -
If I’ve learned just one lesson,
It’s be sure to ask a question.
Don’t complain or hate the answer,
Each result is your advancer.
You don’t have to be afraid,
That you’ll rate a lousy grade.
Lousy grades are in the mind,
No matter how the rates combine.
And knowing what your public thinks,
Frees from chains and welds good links.
To make your town more livable,
Survey now! It’s our deliverable!
- A Haiku by Angelica Wedell -
