Why municipal governments matter
Municipal governments play an important role in our everyday lives. They are responsible for providing local services, including important infrastructure such as drinking water, roads, fire protection, sewage, trash collection, and more.
It is important to have progressive voices at municipal governments because municipalities will play a role in making decisions that affect the industries where MoveUP members work, including public transit, utilities, infrastructure construction, and public insurance.
Electing progressive governments at the municipal level means the difference between expanding public services and secure jobs in our communities, versus seeing services cut and jobs lost.
