Special districts with jurisdiction over specific geographical areas and/or governmental functions offer many opportunities for public service as an elected official.  Such governing bodies also are an excellent training ground and stepping-stone for those interested in higher-level positions.  Potential candidates for elected positions on special district boards gain valuable experience, even if they are not successful in their first runs for office, and expand their knowledge of the community and their understanding of the issues facing future constituents.
