Community for Responsible Government promotes nonpartisan, pragmatic, problem-solving approaches to local government. We seek leaders who are interested in governing and who understand the powers and limitations of local government. We promote policies that improve the quality of life for all by working toward housing, safety and security, and inclusion and representation for all. We come from a variety of backgrounds and philosophical and political viewpoints, and are dedicated to working together to achieve our common goals. We aim to build a broad coalition of Madisonians, representing former elected officials, trade associations, small business owners, and unions.
As a startup organization, we are developing our public policy agenda, researching the positions of our public officials, and educating the public on these issues. We want to compare these records and positions against our shared values. In the coming months we'll be developing a more active voice in city policy decisions.
