Abstract

This is the first of several reports from the Michigan Public Policy Survey 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. The findings are based on statewide surveys of local government leaders in the Fall 2012 wave of the Michigan Public Policy Survey (MPPS).

Keywords: trust in government, political participation
