Mayor Trevor Elkins of Newburgh Heights, Ohio (a small suburb of Cleveland) inspired the most progressive parental leave policy in the country: six-months paid leave for all of the village’s full-time employees, women and men, biological parents and adoptive.
That’s leadership. That’s innovation in government. That’s the future.
Way to go Mayor Elkins! Who’s next?
