What Defines Citizenship - Matt Curtis

In Chapter 9 of 17, public affairs and communications strategist Matt Curtis defines citizenship as building your community up to a better place than which you found it. Curtis invokes a camping comparison to visualize this. He believes donating time and money, complemented by voting and active participation in understanding the political issues central to the public conversation enable citizenship. Curtis is chief of staff for Austin, Texas Mayor Lee Leffingwell.
