Using the Ballot to Fight Corruption

The Public Press hosted a panel discussion on Oct. 29 exploring how voters can use the ballot box to hold local and state government accountable. Veteran good-government experts provided a break down of the challenges in San Francisco and California, and answered questions from the audience.

Our panelists were:

  • Carmen Balber, executive director, Consumer Watchdog
  • Larry Bush, member, San Francisco Ethics Commission

The discussion was moderated by Bay Area radio journalist Max Pringle.

This article is part of a project examining ways to use the ballot to hold local government accountable. It was supported by the Solutions Journalism Network’s Renewing Democracy program.
