"Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world.

Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has"

Wes "Scoop" Nisker, Newscaster


Government is a slow and tedious process. While it often includes citizen and neighborhood involvement, non-governmental, private organizations have created movements and interesting groups which can create positive change in our cities and towns.

I am fascinated by the way groups are created and how they influence public decision making. This blog merely recognizes them and forwards the description of these groups from their own websites.

Local Bites

Location: Fresno, CA

Website: www.tastefresno.com/localbites

Local Bites is a partnership between TasteFresno and Mayor Swearengin to encourage Fresnans to support locally owned restaurants—it's a simple, yet effective way that we can all have an impact on our local economy!

Once a month, Mayor Swearengin will dine out at a local restaurant (on her own dime, of course!). You're invited to join, or create your own Local Bites night—to participate, simply make the commitment to dine locally about once a month.
