Local governments and community healthcare services are often pressed for resources. This can lead to gaps in social safety nets that provide essential health and wellness services to residents.
Local government leaders are not only tasked with the responsibility of making crucial decisions that impact the citizens in the community, but they must also meet resident demands for providing insight into why those decisions were made.
