The Citizens League of Greater Cleveland seeks to achieve integrity, efficiency, and transparency in local and county government by promoting citizen education and involvement.
In November 2009, the voters of Cuyahoga County approved Issue 6, ushering in a new era of county government. By that vote, the citizens rejected both an inefficient governmental structure and a corrupt political culture marked by officials who exploited that structure for personal gain. Part of the new charter included the creation of the Charter Review Commission, which will be seated periodically.
For more than 100 years, The Citizens League fostered citizen involvement in government. After a short absence, it returned in April 2010 in order to advocate for and safeguard the structural and cultural change that the voters demanded.
We currently advance our mission through our Voter Education, County Government Monitor, and Alliance of Good Government Advocates programs, in addition to hosting forums, including frequent good government discussions with international delegations hosted by the Cleveland Council on World Affairs.
Please contact us if you would like to work for the betterment of local governance.
