In 2003, as President of the Unit 5 Citizens' Advisory Council, Julia organized efforts to gather input from residents on acceptable cost-cutting
measures for the financially- strapped school district. Her team's efforts resulted in having nearly one-thousand residents make over five thousand
suggestions. The school board was able to use the categorized list of suggestions to cut over 5 million dollars in the budget without a large
outcry from the citizens or teachers. Julia is also President of the League of Women Voters where she has cultivated a more politically balanced
membership base and has moderated numerous political and community education forums.
