With “safer at home” orders in effect in an attempt to flatten
the curve of COVID-19 spread, cities were on the front lines
maintaining essential services and working to protect residents
who were out of work or lost their job because of the crisis.
Collectively, California cities are creating hundreds, if not
thousands, of projects each year that improve the lives of
residents. While many people often lament that other levels of
government do not always seem to work, California cities can show
powerfully through #LocalWorks that local government works.
