'C' is for CAO

Welcome to the Political Trenches: Local Government At Work, a new online show dedicated to local governance here in Alberta, across Canada and Around the World.

Each week, Co-Hosts Ian McCormack (President of Strategic Steps Inc.) and Christopher Brown (Host of the Cross Border Interviews with Chris Brown) come together to talk about the big news and issues facing municipal governance.

In today's episode, We chat about budgeting in a post-pandemic world, what happens when your municipality gets inspected by the provincial government, and the rise of threats against local elected leaders.

We are also joined by the Parkland Country CAO Laura Swain, and former CAO and now Owner of Clear Plan Consulting Pam Malach.

Be sure to tune in every 1st and 3rd Wednesday of each month, Subscribe to the show on Apple Podcast, Spotify, and wherever you get your favourite podcasts.
