Governance

The Governance team tackles how to modernize and improve our electoral system to elect a government worthy of public trust, and addresses how to run a government and ensure effective policymaking. Specifically, the Governance team examines the issues created by unfettered government growth, mismanagement and waste of taxpayer funds, and how to restore the proper balance of power between Congress, the executive branch, and the judiciary.
