Leadership Richardson

Richardson Mayor Laura Maczka

"I'd love to put in a plug for Leadership Richardson. LR was a life-changing event for me. I’d lived in Richardson for 35 years, thought I knew everything I needed to know. LR showed me that there is so much more to our community and ways to get involved. I went through LR and jumped in with both feet into the bigger community. Five years later, I am serving in ways I never dreamed I would serve. And I can honestly say that I have gotten so much more than I have given!"
