My Take

Valeria Gurr, Nevada Institute for Children’s Research and Policy

I would like to get more effective [immigration] laws passed, ones that actually recognize that ours is a country of immigrants instead of treating them, treating us, as second-class citizens. Yo postularía para trabajar en nuestras normas de inmigración. Me gustaría conseguir que se pasaran leyes más eficaces, en las que realmente se reconozca que nuestro país es un país de inmigrantes, en lugar de tratarlos como ciudadanos de segunda clase.

My Take

John Roderick, Musician, Songwriter, and Podcaster.

"My favorite potential thing that government does is plan. Good government plans far out, for every eventuality and best possible outcome they can imagine. The worst government doesn’t plan; it just reacts."

My Take

Allison Cook, Story of Stuff Project

"One of the challenges of our relationship with government is that when it’s working, you don’t see the work being done. I appreciate my roads and libraries and the public infrastructure resources that we take for granted. I’ve always had a dream campaign where you celebrate the public infrastructure, like libraries."

My Take

My Take: Cornell Woolridge

"My mother is my government hero. She has never won an election, but she has made a tremendous difference in the City of Arlington (Texas), Tarrant County (Texas), and in the African American community as a whole by just being the first African American to run for school board or a county seat."

My Take

Taylor Jo Isenberg, Vice President of Networks at the Roosevelt Institute

My favorite thing government does is involve citizens in the decision-making process. While people separate ‘government’ and ‘politics,’ mentally, government is a reflection of our representative democracy. So I’d make the case that our best government function is a process – getting and keeping citizens involved in how we run our country.

My Take

My Take: Julie Nelson, Director of the Government Alliance on Race and Equity

One in six people work for government, but we frequently think of government as people other than “us”... People who work in the public sector are dedicated and passionate about serving the public, from schoolteachers, to electrical workers, to planners to elected officials.

My Take

Max Stier, President and CEO of the Partnership for Public Service

"Our government should be both better supported and understood by critical stakeholders like the general public, the business community and Congress."

My Take

Tiana Epps-Johnson

"If I could do anything, I would continue to focus on helping people in local government develop professionally so they can become more modern, efficient, accountable, and accessible."

My Take

My Take: Laura John, State Tribal Policy Specialist, Montana Budget and Policy Center

"I'm proud that Montana has the highest number of American Indian legislators. The work that is being done by these legislators is setting the precedent for the rest of the country. It is my hope that other states follow in our lead to make Indian Country a better place."

My Take

My Take: Colin Parent, Policy Council at Circulate San Diego

Our government would be aggressive in its efforts to advance the public good, but also modest about when it should let forces external to government be the drivers of human activity.
