Gen Xers (born 1965-1976) and Millenials (born 1977-1995) share many of the values of their parents and grandparents, but have also developed their own styles, attitudes and world views.
These generations want to be involved, but in different ways than previous generations. Attracting these new generations to city service requires reintroducing them to city government and the opportunities it holds for building personal skills and making a difference.
LMC policy analysis staff provided research and guidance to the work of the Demographics Task Force, and are available to answer your questions or to direct you to additional resources.
