The California Public Officials Survey includes information gathered from local elected officials (city council members and mayors) in the state of California. The survey explores the links between values, institutional capacity, and decision making by public officials and policy makers in California, and implications for effective policy making, services delivery, and public accountability. The survey was conducted in 2011. The survey was funded by the Bedrosian Center for Governance and the Public Enterprise at the USC Sol Price School of Public Policy.
