A measure to make California county governments more representative, accessible, and accountable to the populations that they serve was introduced today by Senator Tony Mendoza (D-Artesia).

“Accountability and transparency are critical to the functioning of government, be it at the state, local, or federal levels,” Senator Mendoza said. “It has been over one hundred and fifty years since the county system of government was introduced. California, especially Southern California, has changed so dramatically and it is imperative to adjust how a Board of Supervisors is structured for large, urban counties.”

State Sen. Tony Mendoza (D-Artesia) is the lead author on the legislation that would put the matter of changing the state Constitution to a vote on the California ballot in June 2018.
