Rosseel gets LGLP nod


Alderman Tom Rosseel has been nominated to represent Farragut in the Local Government Leadership Program.

“I was very gratified. I feel very pleased and honored,” Rosseel said.

“I have tried to be very active in what’s been happening in the community. I think it’s important for me to participate in the decision-making process and be more involved in what citizens are interested in and turning it into actual action.

“That’s sort of what I’ve been trying to do as an elected official. I think I can do an even better job and that’s really why I want to do this,” he added.


The Program will lead elected officials and municipality administrators throughout Tennessee through issues as varied as budgets and road improvements.

“This is basically taking what you’ve learned and trying to turn it into things that can make you a better leader in your community: expanding your leadership skills,” Rosseel said.

“What I would like to get from this is being able to apply this to the types of issues and problems facing the Town, and hopefully make me a more effective alderman,” he added.

According to Rosseel, the Program will focus on interaction and application, “trying to get at the heart of what it really means to be a leader … interact with people on a variety of different levels and take some good ideas and turn them into practice.”

“You need to have a different level of skills to be able to get things to happen. What they want to do is make sure people become a little bit more effective: better listeners and better capable of turning ideas into actions that succeed,” Rosseel said.
