We’re your local mayors, commissioners, and councilmembers. We’re your neighbors, small business owners, and little league coaches. We’re the people you’ve trusted to keep the lights on in our towns, cities, and counties.
In the past few years, many out-of-touch state legislators have passed laws to prevent you from having a say on the local level. They’re threatened by the local control you earn with your tax dollars — your right to have local problems addressed with local solutions. And they’re threatening to take your local voice away with fines and other punishment.
In many cases, shadowy special interests and unaccountable lobbyists are behind these efforts. They don’t like when we as a community pass laws to ban smoking, protect our environment, raise wages, ensure local hiring, and prevent gun violence. But we stand with you, the people — not corporate bottom lines.
That’s why we’re standing up together — and we hope you’ll join us. Sign up today, join our non-partisan, people-powered coalition, and send a message to our state lawmakers that local communities want local solutions to local problems, not more heavy-handed state government. Together, we can #DefendLocal.
