Book Synopsis


Politics, Parks, and Potholes is a guidebook to getting what you want from your local government. It is aimed at everyday residents who, until a problem arises, pay little or no attention to their city council or county board of supervisors. Then something triggers their concern and they don’t know how to engage in the process.

Written by two former elected officials, the book takes a nonpartisan approach to helping residents who do not want to run for office or organize large protest movements.

The audience for this guidebook includes:
• Citizen activists
• Civics classes at the high school or college level
• Nonprofit organizations, regardless of political affiliation

There are few books written about activism at the local level. Potholes, Parks, and Politics builds on the view that potholes don’t have party affiliation. Everyone wants a clean, vibrant, safe community. This guidebook is intended to help anyone contribute to achieving that shared vision.
