Hometown Connection

Hometown ConnectionGMA's Hometown Connection is about creating a localized, identifiable and understandable frame of reference on the challenges and opportunities facing your city.
And the best time to do that is now and the best way to do that is to show them.
We need our legislators to see what cities are doing, better understand their achievements and challenges and be more connected to the welfare of our cities. If we don’t make these Hometown Connections, the General Assembly will continue to legislate without knowing the real-life ramifications of their decisions on your city. 
Make your Hometown Connection an annual event and keep the dialog going year-around!
