PRINCIPLES

Davis is an amazing city. Where we go from here is a choice the entire community  must be able to participate in, and participate in meaningful ways.  
The Track for Responsible Community Driven Government
Transparent 

Institute a fully transparent city decision-making process from start to finish with follow-up to ensure that decisions are implemented as promised and agreed to.  This includes thorough and timely outreach to make certain that the community members are informed. There should be no surprises in city government.

Responsible

Strengthen our city with closer attention and management of fiscal decisions and set policy with an eye to growing local businesses and positioning Davis to take advantage of its unique ties to UCD, local agriculture, and farm-to-fork cuisine.

Accountable 

Evaluate today's decisions by their impacts on our collective future.  What do the policies accomplish for individuals, the town, the environment, and the city's fiscal health?

Community-Oriented

Listen to people’s concerns in a respectful manner and actively pursue  neighborhood involvement.  Take prompt action to address community concerns. Our diversity is our strength and people should feel welcome, safe, and included in our community.

Knowledge-Driven

Tap our considerable local talent through commissions and input from local experts and key partnerships.
