Some of my favorite projects to work on are for cities, counties or the State. The Dan Jones side of the company does a lot of work for government entities, and it really amazes me how much research they put into taxpayer-funded projects. I know sometimes people wonder whether or not their opinions are being considered when a new road is built, when a new park is put into place, or even when a new form of government is enacted. Well, I am impressed with how much research is actually done prior to the execution of a project. Of course plans are made based on opinions seen in aggregate, but I actually appreciate that they utilize the time and resources to explore public opinion a bit to make sure they’re creating a plan that is widely accepted or the most beneficial for the majority.
It’s so neat to be involved with the actual research, but I think it’s especially neat to see our recommendations actually implemented.
