Former Senator Tim Cullen, Former Janesville City Council member and President Rich Gruber, Former Janesville School Board Member and  City Council member and President   DuWayne Severson and former Janesville City Council member and president Paul Murphy  have spent a bit of time together brainstorming the creation of a Rock County Citizen Civics Academy.  Collectively, we are tired of what we see as the overreach by organized political parties into the non partisan jurisdiction  of local government.  Thus, a grassroots effort to organize, educate and advocate for the reestablishment of common sense principles of service before self and frankly doing what is right based upon the collective good of the community.
