LMR Alums Have Success at Ballot Box

Leadership Metro Richmond is a leadership-development and community-service program founded 25 years ago at the impetus of Fmr. Congressman Tom Bliley. The RTD has an interesting look at the impact that the growing program is now having on both Richmond and statewide politics.

LMR alums include Governor-elect Tim Kaine, Delgate-elect Jennifer McClellan of Richmond, and Sheriff-elect C.T. Woody of Richmond. I'd be interested in knowing if there are any local leadership initiatives like this in other areas of the state.

Allot of local communities have such programs, such as Leadership Fairfax. The more interesting program is the Sorenson Institute of Political Leadership. This Institute has both a lenghty leadership program and mini-campaign programs. Graduates of the former include quite a few members of the General Assembly and local government officials.
