September 2014 Results for America launched their Local Moneyball for Government Fellowship Program and named the inaugural class of fellows from 11 cities. The 11 local fellows, who were chosen through a competitive national process, will participate in a rigorous 18-month initiative designed to help them develop and operate the local government infrastructure necessary to be able to use data, evidence and evaluation to improve outcomes for young people, their families and communities. The 11 fellows come from the local governments of Albuquerque, Atlanta, Baltimore, Los Angeles, Louisville, New Orleans, New York, Philadelphia, Salt Lake City, Seattle, and Tulsa. The Laura and John Arnold Foundation graciously provided support for Results for America’s Local Moneyball for Government Fellowship Program.

Results for America will help the 11 local fellows achieve their goals through the following three core activities:

  • A New National Network. Fellows will create a new national network of accomplished local public-sector professionals who support the Moneyball for Government Principles and are committed to developing and implementing “what works” agendas in their cities. Fellows will be invited to at least five national Fellows meetings to learn more about the lessons learned and successes achieved in other cities.
  • Moneyball for Government Implementation Plans. Fellows will have the opportunity to design and execute actionable plans to implement the Moneyball for Government principles in their cities. These plans will serve as foundations for accelerating “what works” agendas in local governments all across the country. In order to support their efforts, each Fellow will be assigned a coach who can provide the deep technical assistance and project management that will ensure their success.
  • Access to Expertise. Fellows will also have access to well-known, and well-respected local, state and federal government leaders who have successfully developed and implemented “what works” plans all across the country. Experts will also be available to provide on-the-ground technical assistance to help Fellows implement their “what works” plans in their cities.

The 11 local fellows being announced today include:

Gilberto Montano, Chief of Staff, Office of the Mayor, City of Albuquerque;

Emily  Love, Director, Office of Innovation Delivery & Performance, City of Atlanta;

Kaliope Parthemos, Chief of Staff, Office of the Mayor, City of Baltimore;
