Lee County is seeking applications for its new Advisory Committee on Multicultural Affairs.
The committee was created back in June. It will advise the Board of County Commissioners on quality of life issues such as decent housing, employment and healthcare.
The committee will work closely with the county’s Black Affairs & Hispanic Affairs Advisory Boards.
County Spokeswoman - Shirley Carney – says the new multi-cultural board should reflect the county’s growing diversity.
“The Commissioners felt that because the growth in our area from other races and other groups that they saw a need to expand it. Because everyone is faced with difficulties under those categories like housing and employment – not just the Black Affairs or Hispanic Affairs Boards. So they just felt there was a need for it.”
Anyone interested in serving – or recommending someone else to serve – should visit Lee County’s website for an application…click on “Advisory Committee”.
