About Us

Our Mission Statement:

BetterYuma.Org holds Yuma area governments to be accountable, transparent, and responsive to their taxpayers and to their communities for fair fees, policies, and regulations that allow existing businesses to flourish and will attract new, smart growth.

We expect our governments to be service oriented, and to respect business and private property rights. The members of this Organization will lend their expertise to the local government officials in a collaborative and pro-active manner to accomplish these goals.
