Beyond trust in government: government trust in citizens?

« Return to policy survey listing

March 2013


This is the first of several reports on the opinions of Michigan’s local government leaders regarding citizen engagement in their jurisdictions. This report focuses on the levels of trust local officials feel toward their citizens as responsible participants in local governance. Subsequent reports will explore local jurisdictions’ policies that foster citizen engagement, including the use of technology. These findings are based on statewide surveys of local government leaders in the Fall 2012 wave of the Michigan Public Policy Survey (MPPS).
