We Believe

Local self-governance is the cornerstone of democracy.
Our strength lies in the unity of our diverse communities of interest.
In the involvement of all stakeholders in establishing goals and in solving problems.
In conducting the business of government with transparency, openness, respect, and civility.
The spirit of honest public service is what builds communities.
Open decision-making that is of the highest ethical standards honors the public trust.
Cities are vital to the strength of the California economy.
The vitality of cities is dependent upon their fiscal stability and local autonomy.
The active participation of all city officials increases the League's effectiveness.
Partnerships and collaborations are essential elements of focused advocacy and lobbying.
Ethical and well-informed city officials are essential for responsive, visionary leadership and effective and efficient city operations.


A reading of the founding and early history of the League is rich with colorful personalities and political intrigue. For a flavor of the character of the men who founded this association, read the following excerpt from a history of the League prepared by Winston Updegraff, former editor of Western City magazine and a long-time Laguna Beach resident. Portions of his history appeared in the September and October 1973 editions of Western City, a magazine in celebration of the League's 75th anniversary.
