A Matter of Choice is about ethics in municipal decision-making. It is intended primarily for those who serve on municipal councils and for senior employees of the municipal public service. Educators and others interested in decision-making at the local level will also find the content of value.
The chief goal is to encourage thoughtful self-analysis and discussion about values which are fundamental to democracy. A secondary goal is to provide a selection of practical resources that will assist the process of decision-making.
At the core of this book are 21 brief, introspective case studies. Each case study challenges readers to face themselves and to consider how they will respond if placed in a situation similar to that described.
