Research has shown
that a community's attractiveness to residents is heavily influenced by the
quality of its local government. In order to
create a positive sense of place – one that will help a community to attract
and retain talent – cities and towns must adopt a model of governance that not
only provides efficient and effective public services, but also promotes
democratic responsiveness and accountability.
