Evaluation Criteria

Platform Adherence

Service to Stakeholders


Naples Better Government employs a criteria-based system to evaluate the performance of elected officials during their first year in public office, with its intent being to assess the individual’s work, accomplishments, success or lack thereof within the context of good governance.

Evaluations are conducted during interviews with elected officials shortly after the end of their first year in office. 

A numeric scale of 1 through 10 for each criterion is used to arrive at a grade ranging from A to C.  Grades and rationales are sent to the public officials and announced to the public following approval of Naples Better Government..
