The Influence of Partisan Politics on Government
April 19, 2013, Public Sector Roundtable
The corrosive effect of partisanship on the business of government was the focus of a presentation by Mickey Edwards, former Oklahoma Congressman and member of the House Republican leadership. Edwards is the author of The Parties Versus the People: How to Turn Republicans and Democrats into Americans.
His talk, co-sponsored by the Ethics Center and the Commonwealth Club of Silicon Valley, was followed by a meeting with the Center's Public Sector Roundtable. Members, who are locally elected officials, shared observations with Edwards about how partisan politics can interfere with the basic duty of politicians to serve their constituents.
