Calling on Costello (R-PA 6), 21 W. Market Street, West Chester PA
Friday, Jan. 22, 11:30am to 1pm
THIS WEEK’S FOCUS: WE THE PEOPLE DESERVE BETTER; DO YOUR JOBS!
Good governance has 8 major characteristics. It is participatory, consensus oriented, accountable, transparent, responsive, effective and efficient, equitable and inclusive, and follows the rule of law. Good governance is responsive to the present and future needs of our country, exercises prudence in policy-setting and decision-making, and that the best interests of all citizens are taken into account. We expect our representatives to follow these simple rules.
1. Rule of Law
This does not include bribing mistresses, using the government as an ATM machine or making false allegations against opponents.
Transparency means that information should be provided in easily understandable forms and media; it does not mean remaining silent and complicit when your party’s leader approves of the KKK.
Good governance requires that our elected officials serve the best interests of their constituents and LISTEN to them.
4. Consensus Oriented
Good governance requires consultation with experts and constituents, NOT blocking them on Social Media.
5. Equity and Inclusiveness
Government that works for all people, not just certain races.
6. Effectiveness and Efficiency
Good governance means that the representatives don’t shut down the government because they are anti immigrant.
Accountability is a key tenet of good governance. Our elected representatives will be held to account for their actions.
Participation needs to be informed and organized, including freedom of expression and assiduous concern for the best interests of society in general.
