City Councilwoman Lisa Jensen has been awarded a certificate of municipal leadership from the Association of Washington Cities. Jensen completed more than 30 hours of training credits to earn this distinction.

The program is designed to enhance the ability of elected officials by providing them with knowledge and skills required for effective governance.

Jensen took part in a variety of workshops and courses about budgeting, land-use planning, personnel and leadership. In addition to broadening knowledge of municipal service, the program also improves relationships with City Council colleagues, city staff and residents.

“Public service is a constant learning experience,” Jensen said. “The program offered by the AWC provides a great opportunity to develop my skills and apply them as I serve the residents of Newcastle and work with my fellow council members.”

Jensen was elected to the City Council in November 2007. She is a member of the city’s Finance Committee, the Suburban Cities Association Finance Committee and an alternate for the SCA Public Issues Committee. Jensen is also a member of the Harborview Medical Center board of trustees.
