Welcome to the Sequim Good Governance League

Good Governance builds community, irresponsible governance divides community.

The BIG Event
Facebook Event of SGGL Candidate Panel .png

Please join us for the SGGL Virtual Candidate Panel, a robust, non-partisan discussion with the five SGGL-endorsed Sequim City Council Candidates. This will be an opportunity to hear from the candidates along with lots of time for audience questions. The event will be moderated by Paula Barnes, the Dungeness Valley's longtime resident and retired Director of the North Olympic Library System.

Note that because SGGL has endorsed a slate of candidates, we felt it would be a conflict of interest to attempt to put on an “independent Forum” and invite all candidates. Yes, this may sound out of step with the funny business that’s currently taking place in our community, but we believe in the importance of modeling good governance.

All community members are invited. Please invite your friends and family and join us on 10/4.

The Sequim Good Governance League Story

The confluence of events that took over 2020—the pandemic, an epidemic, rising awareness of systemic racism, a tumultuous federal election—revealed that national and global forces can intrude on Sequim’s civic concerns. A democratic-republic requires good governance to navigate such complexity. The Sequim Good Governance League was formed to support and promote good governance in Sequim and the surrounding Sequim-Dungeness Valley area. Good governance thrives on honesty, integrity, openness, inclusiveness, and accountability, using facts, reason, and ethical behaviors to develop non-partisan solutions that serve and protect the residents of Sequim. 






The Sequim Good Governance League (SGGL) is a nonpartisan civic organization that promotes, encourages, and advocates for good governance, and  educates the citizenry and those who seek and hold public office in the principles and practices of good governance.


Local governmental institutions in the greater Sequim area (the Sequim-Dungeness Valley) serve the needs and interests of the entire community through established best practices of good governance. Good governance is based on, among other things: honesty, integrity, accessibility, inclusiveness, transparency, equity, diversity, competence, accountability, using facts and reason, exhibiting ethical behaviors, and respecting the rule of law.


SGGL seeks to pursue its mission through the development and implementation of a broad, long-term approach, engaging citizens and our elected and appointed government officials in an ongoing dialogue about, and commitment to, good governance.
