Past Ratings

History of the Candidate Ratings:

Since 1913 the Municipal League and it’s citizen volunteers have been conducting the Candiate Rating process and assessing candidates. The Municipal League Candidate Ratings are based on four criteria–Involvement, Effectiveness, Character & Knowledge.  The ratings are produced by citizen volunteers seeking to understand the potential a candidate has to be truly effective in the office they seek and to beneficially serve the community. Political affiliation or the stance a candidate has on any particular issue are not considered as part of the League rating process.

We are currently working to build online access to our historical ratings.  During development of this online resource if there are any particular years ratings that you would like a copy of please contact the Municipal League office via email at info@munileagueratings.org.
