Good Governance

Ethics in government is the single-most important aspect needed for maintaining public trust.  When elected officials refuse to acknowledge input from others and use tactics that are belittling and dismissive toward citizens who voice valid concerns it borders on a violation of a citizen's right to redress of grievances without fear of retribution.

In an email dated December 7, 2023, the Board of Directors for the Prescott Valley Citizens Alliance called on the Town Manager and Councilmembers to establish a Code of Conduct and Ethics Policy for elected leaders. 

We are still waiting for a response. In fact, our request was never even acknowledged.

Goals and Objectives

Good governance ensures that citizens' voices are included in the decision making process and that it is responsive to the current and future needs of society. 

Prescott Valley Citizens Alliance advocates for the adoption of a Code of Ethics for elected leaders and the appointment of a Citizen Review BoardWe seek truth, transparency, appropriate conduct and integrity in local government.

PVCA advocates for public policies that reflect a forward-looking vision to enhance our quality of life with respect to desired population levels, essential services and all supporting infrastructure.  We will explore the establishment of a charter government that benefits residents.

Charter Government

The state constitution provides that cities with a population of more than 3,500 may frame and adopt their own charters. The purpose of charter or home rule government is to give cities a greater degree of self-determination. Thus, it applies the principle of self-government in its most ultimate sense at the local level.  Click here and go to Chapter IV to learn more.
