Revolution at the Roots

"William D. Eggers and John O'Leary provide a refreshing glimpse at what is right. From the state houses of Boston and Sacramento to the City Halls of Milwaukee and Indianapolis, policymakers are reshaping the fundamental role of government, returning sovereignty to the taxpayer. The revolution has indeed begun." — Governor William F. Weld, Massachusetts

"This book will help make government pro-citizen once again." — Mayor Michael R. White, Cleveland

"REVOLUTION AT THE ROOTS is an excellent hands-on account of the new governance." — Mayor Stephen Goldsmith, Indianapolis

"REVOLUTION AT THE ROOTS describes an innovation that's transforming local government and improving people's lives across America. The story Bill Eggers and John O'Leary tell may end up being the real political story of the 1990s." — Mayor John O. Norquist, Milwaukee

"In the 1994 elections, Americans sent a clear message: we want our government back. REVOLUTION AT THE ROOTS is vivid proof that, outside Washington, fundamental change is not a pipe dream — it is already underway. Across America, government is getting smaller, better, and closer to home. Voters should read this book and learn what is possible; candidates should memorize it, or look for a different line of work." — Governor Tommy Thompson, Wisconsin
