"Start Helping Impacted Neighborhoods Everywhere"

I recently launched the SHINE campaign - Start Helping Impacted Neighborhoods Everywhere - a comprehensive initiative to clean up our district. I wanted to let you know more about it so we can work hand in hand to make a real difference.

SHINE’s goal is to assist schools, parks and neighborhoods with projects that will make a lasting improvement. This program will facilitate building a stronger and more well-rounded community by bringing the many facets of a community together such as, schools, students, non-profits, government and citizens.

Local Perspectives with Reid Mullins interviewing District 2 County Commissioner Brian Maughan.

This interview highlights the great contributions and efforts of the District 2 Shine Program Initiative.

The SHINE Program Initiative

  • Improve economic development
  • Prepare future generations to be responsible citizens
  • Efficiently utilize and expose resources through community partnerships
  • Create an overall safer, cleaner and nicer place to live

SHINE is contributing to this effort by using people who have been sentenced to community service as laborers on projects. Under county supervision they will pay back their debt to society while keeping jail populations down and saving our tax dollars.

SHINE has specific programs for each contributing facet of our community. High school and college students can earn a Commissioner’s Cord and Certificate at graduation for donating 100 hours of community service. Businesses, universities, schools, non-profits and individual citizens are also encouraged to participate. SHINE has helped facilitate several partnership efforts.

There are many ways to be involved. If you would like more information on the program and learn how you can participate, please call my office. I look forward to hearing from you.
