Civics – 6 in a Series – LA City Clerk Connect

December 23rd, 2020 Comments off

Today I turn my attention back to my own backyard with this link to LA City Clerk Connect, the online information system and app for all things Los Angeles Government. Here you will find schedules, ordinances, agendas, committee information, voting records and even a public comment form if you can’t visit city hall in person.

Civics - 6 in a Series - LA City Clerk Connect

There is a lot of information here and I have only scratched the surface myself. You can set automated reminders on various discussions, ordinances and referrals to keep you informed of when action on those issues is taking place. It is a bit quiet for now due to both COVID19 and the holidays, but it will be a great place to check out in preparation for your enhanced civic engagement in the coming  year.

As always, an informed citizenry is a good citizenry!


So, just what is “civics” anyway?

Civics is defined as: the study or science of the privileges and obligations of citizens.

Civic education is the study of the theoretical, political and practical aspects of citizenship, as well as its rights and duties. It includes the study of civil law and civil code, and the study of government with attention to the role of citizens―as opposed to external factors―in the operation and oversight of government. League of Women Voters of Delaware.

In order to have the government we want, we need to both understand and engage in civics activities in our local communities. I am dedicated to doing better in 2021. How about you?
