Citizens News is a creation of a group of residents (Citizens Education & Advocacy or CEA) of Douglas County, Oregon. CEA’s Citizens News blog hopes to bring issues about local civic life including issues that deal with defense of civil liberties and open accountable government. CEA believes that government must provide for the common good of all people not just a few. CEA believes that the best place to get and keep accountable government is to start at the local level. This blog will deal with issues citizens encounter while fulfilling our civic duty by being an informed public citizen.
We welcome any comments about civic life here in Douglas County Oregon and elsewhere. We welcome civil civic discourse and dialogue about issues.
