Oversight, Effectiveness, & Accountability Issues

For more than a century, Citizens Union has served as a watchdog for the public interest and an advocate for transparent, effective, and efficient governance that is open and accountable to the citizens of New York. We continue to advocate for strong policies and institutions to accomplish these goals, including an effective system of pursuing ethics and lobbying violations, and greater transparency during the budget process and in the operations of city government including agencies, public authorities and other entities.
