Mayor Hicks-Hudson Announces Initiative to Involve Citizens in Transforming City Government

Today at 1 pm Mayor Paula Hicks-Hudson will announce the formation of Citizens for Effective Government, a citizen-led initiative to bring the experience and expertise of the full community to bear on restructuring Toledo’s city government operations.

“The issues facing Toledo’s budget and operations are structural and have been created over many years. I’m calling on a group of community volunteers to immerse themselves in city government and provide their outside expertise so we can be more efficient and effective,” said Mayor Paula Hicks-Hudson.

The initiative is modeled on the proven process used by the Corporation for Effective Government, which conducted numerous studies—including of County government—in the past. 

WHAT: Citizens for Effective Government
