History February 19, 2007 Progressive Movement: United to make nation better 1900, hurricane destroys Galveston, Texas. No real plan, and after a year, they hire a 5 person committee of urban experts to build the city. It is a commissioned style government: city has mayor, city manager, and cities throughout area and country follow this idea of a commissioned style government. City Level -1914, 400 cities have city style governments. Progressives are doing something positives and somewhat contradictory, they want more choice, more democracy. Progressives make the city run better and make life better for citizens, yet creating a non-democratic city. State Level: 1) The initiative- Get voters to sign a petition for an issue, and it is sent to a state house and they have to address it. 2) The referendum- Voter initiated veto power (pushing people out office). Used as a way to get politicians out of office.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
