We often say the RPLG is a “mission driven” firm — the mission being to help local governments survive, succeed and innovate. It is particularly heartening that the California Supreme Court has recognized the critical work our clients perform every day in a recent decision (Pico Neighborhood Association v. City of Santa Monica (2023) 2023 WL 5440486). It’s not just that all politics are local; all government services are local. Support your local governments!

“Local governments make many of the most important decisions that affect Californians’ everyday lives. They build and repair public streets, they define a neighborhood’s character through planning and zoning, and they decide where to place public parks and where to allow restaurants, bars, and liquor stores to operate. They make decisions about public transit and decide where to site industries that cause pollution. They provide police services and determine the level and type of policing and other first responder services, they educate our children, they operate or regulate local utilities, and they have the power to levy taxes. The people exercise control over these choices by electing representatives to city councils, county boards, boards of education, community college boards, special district boards, and other bodies.”

Justice Kelli Evans, California Supreme Court
