SMARTMoraga is a non-profit, non-partisan organization dedicated to promoting accountable, cost-effective and efficient government.
We believe local governance should reflect Sensible Management And Responsible Taxation (hence the SMART moniker).
We began in 2017 as a small group of concerned Moraga residents (with expertise in business strategy, turnarounds, finance, operations, project management and human resources) who came together to generate ideas and assist the Town following its surprise declaration of a "fiscal emergency". During that endeavor, we discovered that the direction and governance of our Town was straying farther and farther away from efficiently, effectively and honestly managing our affairs. Our present group consists of a steering committee, an editorial board, a broader "core" group, and its several-hundred general members.
We are a source of varied perspectives and opinions - but with a unified focus on good governance and fiscal responsibility. We welcome you to join us.
