February 2015 Newsletter

A Note From MRT
 
 
Welcome to the February 2015 newsletter. I want to give a big thank you to all who attended the 23rd Annual Empowerment Congress Summit; it was a great success and if you missed it, I encourage you to see the highlights of the event here. Please take a look at all of our new initiatives, ranging from our commitment to end homelessness among veterans this year, to making the county and its trove of data more user-friendly, to preserving historic sites in unincorporated areas and more.
