The Neighborhood Empowerment Coalition believes that the best policy happens when voters can see and touch and feel their representatives. A small town school board member knows what’s going on in that small town’s schools a lot better than the State Board of Education up in Sacramento. A small town Mayor who lives down the street better understands the needs of the town than a Sacramento lobbyist hundreds of miles away.
The NEC is founded on the belief that local government is the best way to provide services that are user-friendly, honest, transparent, and efficient. The NEC will use its resources to promote candidates who support local control and neighborhood empowerment at all levels of government.
