It’s a new year for the Maricopa Advocate Program (MAP).
This week, the City’s Economic Development Department welcomed new members to become advocates for their hometown. More than 100 people showed up Thursday evening at city hall.
The purpose of MAP is to educate citizens about their community, so they can become ambassadors for Maricopa with their friends, on social media and when they travel.
The program is in its sixth year.
Mayor Christian Price welcomed the large crowd of new MAP members. He said the idea behind MAP was to help the city survive the economic recession of the past.
