Without a way to defend local democracy, cities would be vulnerable to political attacks. Since its inception in 2003, CitiPAC has provided the last line of defense for local government.

CITIPAC protects local democracy. For years cities worked to increase constitutional protections for local revenues. With the passage of Proposition 1A they have achieved that goal. But the Legislature frequently generates plans – legislation or ballot measures – that allow the state to assume more and more influence over all levels of government, threatening local services and local decision-making. A well-funded PAC enables the League to respond to these challenges.
