From the Office of Akron Mayor Dan Horrigan:
Members of Mayor Dan Horrigan’s cabinet have a demonstrated commitment to giving back to the greater Akron community by volunteering their time and talent to diverse non-profit organizations. As just one example of this commitment, Randy Briggs, Deputy Mayor for Labor Relations for the City, was recently elected to his sixth term as the President of the Summit County Developmental Disabilities Board (“Summit DD”).
Originally appointed to the Board by late County Executive Russ Pry, Mr. Briggs has been working to advance the mission and vision of Summit DD since January 2009.
“I’ve had some of the most rewarding experiences of my career through this volunteer position,” Briggs said. “Working with my fellow board members and our leadership team to find ways to better serve our clients and ensure that each of our neighbors are treated with respect, dignity, and equality, regardless of ability, has become a true passion for me. This work has made me a better professional and a better person, and I’m grateful for this opportunity to give back, while gaining so much in return.”
The volunteer service of City staff complements the work they do for the City every day. “I’m proud to say that my cabinet, and so many other City employees, know the value of community service,” Mayor Horrigan said. “It is important to me that I am surrounded by leaders and advisors who ‘walk the talk’ and truly care about making Akron a better place – both in their official positions, and through their personal pursuits.”
