The Master of Public Administration (M.P.Adm., M.P.A., or MPA) is a professional post-graduate degree in public administration which is the public sector's offering equivalent to the private sector's Master of Business Administration.

The MPA program is a professional degree for the public sector and it prepares individuals to serve as managers in the executive arm of local, state/provincial, and federal/national government, and increasingly in nongovernmental organization (NGO) and nonprofit sectors; it places a focus on the systematic investigation of executive organization and management. Instruction includes the roles, development, and principles of public administration; public policy management and implementation. Through its history, the MPA degree has become more interdisciplinary by drawing from fields such as economics, sociology, law, anthropology, political science, and regional planning in order to equip MPA graduates with skills and knowledge covering a broad range of topics and disciplines relevant to the public sector. A core curriculum of a typical MPA program usually includes courses on microeconomics, public finance, research methods / statistics, policy process and policy analysis, public financial management, managerial accounting, ethics, public management, leadership, planning & Geographic Information Systems (GIS), and program evaluation/performance measurement. Depending on their interest, MPA students can focus their studies on a variety of public sector fields such as urban planning, emergency management, transportation, health care (especially public health), economic development, urban management, community development, education, non-profits, information technology, environmental policy, cultural policy, and criminal justice, etc.

Ever heard of Gene Goss?


Of course. That still doesn't mean Colby Goss is not the most qualified or that he is political at all. Tell me one thing Colby Goss has been involved in with politics.

Not one damn thing. Plus the way things are done around here do we know if it's legally named after him?

Actually, they named the bypass after Eugene because he was the highway commissioner for the State of Kentucky during the time that it was built and was instrumental in securing the funding from the state to pay for it. I believe Colby is most definitely the right man for this position. Harlan County is in dire straights, nobody can deny that, but who's fault is it? It's definitely not Dan's or Colby's or anybody else in this current administration. Times were good in Harlan County for a long time and nobody prepared for the day the coal was gone. Even without Obama lowering the boom on the industry, it was going to eventually run out, still we kept electing the same CJE, the same Magistrates, the same whatever for decades. Well, this is what we've got now and there isn't much we can do about it but to get someone to continually pump out these grants to hopefully secure some of the Federal Money we were promised. Short of legalizing marijuana in the state of Kentucky, that's about the only hope this county has.

The Fiscal Court wasted over 50 million dollars in coal severance money and didn't attract any industry. They were busy giving handouts.
