Are you interested in preemption reform, increasing the minimum wage, or urging the federal government to support local critical infrastructure? Do you want to advocate for better transportation and paid family leave? The DMO Policy Council helps cities enact progressive legislation, and supports their right to local control.
City leaders are in a significant position to press key Democratic policy initiatives forward. The Policy Council assesses where DMO members can be most effective and helps develop the tools necessary for leaders like you to move the needle on good policy.

Salvador Espino Jr posted about Tell Us Your Story on Facebook 2015-09-18 04:40:32 -0500Take the survey: Tell Us Your Story
As part of promoting DMO, the Policy Council, and you personally, we are looking for stories of how your community is affected by our policy priorities, and how you have engaged constituents who have faced problems around them. In particular, we are looking for stories where municipal government has succeeded where state and federal government has been unable to solve the problem. We will use this information to discuss policy through DMO communications, help you create editorials for newspapers and blogs, and potentially form a speaker’s bureau.
We plan on working closely with you to develop these stories. Please think of this survey as a rough draft. Nothing will be released without your permission. Feel free to submit this form even if you have more to say – we will be able to go into more detail at a later date.Take the survey
