Mr. Smith Goes to Lincoln City – Legalcide Podcast

legalcide podcast

by Jeff Jones, Law Professor, Lewis and Clark Law School


Most Americans go their entire lives without exercising any of their local rights.  Like the right to be given notice of City Council meetings; the right to attend and participate; and the right to request public records from the municipalities that tax us, regulate us, and police us.

But local participation is the only way local governments can be held accountable.  This is the story of one man who tried to hold his local government accountable … and the price he paid.  Up next: Mr. Smith Goes to Lincoln City.
