Through legislative advocacy, policy development, training and education, and a forum for the discussion of both state and regional issues, the Orange County Division of the League of California Cities, strives to achieve the following goals: • “To educate and stimulate, encourage and coordinate the communications of ideas and information among city officials; • To develop broad support on issues and advocate those views to other governmental agencies and the public and; • To improve the quality of life in cities by assisting city officials to make services more efficient and more responsive to the citizens of our cities.”

Scope and Content of Collection
