In an effort to create more responsive government at the local level, Citizens Take Action has created a Report Card that assesses cities on the strength of their campaign finance laws and the transparency of campaign finance data. The Report Card also includes recommendations for safeguards each city can put in place to protect its government from the reality, appearance, and threat of corruption. Our initial Report Card focuses on Orange County, California. To request an analysis of a city outside Orange County please email us at
