Effective governance: we envision a California where the government works for the people, providing services in a manner that is effective, efficient, and equitable across communities and places.

Explanatory context: Our government must work for the people, protecting freedom in all its forms, delivering effective results, and stewarding the people’s resources in an efficient manner. Equity across communities and places means that government agencies should take special care to level the playing field for communities that have historically been excluded or marginalized.
