Good News About Government A Refreshing Change

Tuesday, Aug. 9, 2011

Given the negative tone of recent stories about government, it is refreshing to read of an effort to celebrate the good things happening in our cities.

The League of California Cities and the California Management Foundation have launched a new program called “Strong Cities/Strong State.” The website will be used to highlight positive stories in cities across the state, focusing on quality of life issues as well as interviews of city leaders. The program also includes a Facebook page.

According to the League, this program “provides a first-of-its-kind platform for showcasing California cities’ success stories, pairing these achievements with testimonials from community leaders and emphasizing specific city services and community characteristics.”

The goal of the program is to profile every city in the state over the next 18 months.
