|On April 19, 2012, The Center and the Public Policy Administration Program hosted a discussion forum on "Balancing Public Value as a Question of Ethics". The forum engendered a lively discussion between the audience and a panel of local officials. The discussion was enhanced by the use of digital feedback technology that allowed the audience to be polled instantly on the various values and issues that were brought up.|
