Governmental Affairs

Working to improve the management and effectiveness of all levels of government and election procedures.

The City Bar is committed to the vital interest of ensuring that our government, agencies and elected official operate in a way that is fair, accessible, equitable and ethical. Our work covers all levels of government and is intended to shine a light broadly on the daily inner-workings of our elected and appointed representatives. Through substantive reports, comment letters, testimony and draft legislation we offer reforms to enhance the administration of government. It is in the public's interest to have a government that is transparent, deliberative and accountable to its citizens.
