City GOP is a new organization that seeks to help Republicans win cities. Republicans are losing the city vote. Once the party of the big city mayor, Republicans now control only three mayoral seats in the 25 most populated cities and fewer than roughly 20% of the city council seats in the top 25 most highly populated cities. It’s a trend that doesn't bode well for the party’s future electoral success, given the tremendous population growth and density in urban centers. This will only worsen, unless Republicans change something. Republicans can win cities by learning about the problem, finding solutions, and implementing them. Join us in our effort to support Republicans running in cities, so America's cities can have a brighter future!
Market Urbanism examines how market forces and respect for property rights enable complex, yet vibrant and economically robust communities and regions to emerge through the “spontaneous order” of the land use and transportation marketplace. When left to market forces, as opposed to intervention, land use patterns and transportation systems better reflect the diverse needs and desires of individuals in society. Such a society would be economically and environmentally more efficient and just than when imposed in a top-down fashion by government.http://www.city-journal.org/html/about.html
