We Invite You to Learn More and Become ~ Citizens for a Strong Oshkosh
An Opportunity to Learn About the Future
Citizens for a Strong Oshkosh is an open, inclusive and non-partisan community-based organization. Many public issues and political discussions seem to be framed in an “either/or” model that highlights tradeoffs and choices between limited options. We seek to broaden this discussion to explore or consider more options and possibilities. The following beliefs unite those who join in this common purpose:
1. We believe in a future of hope, promise and genuine distinction for greater Oshkosh area.
2. Although we have different points of view, we are united in the belief that the process of community-based discussion and conversation is an important and often neglected part of the process of leadership and governance.
3. We believe civic advancement requires open, objective and fact-based discussions, dialogues and even pointed debate.
4. We believe our combined efforts are important and necessary to keep our community strong.

Advancing Public Understanding and Informed Input into Public Policy
Citizens for a Strong Oshkosh is an ad hoc community-based group. CSO has been working on community issues since 2007.
We believe in Oshkosh ~ We believe in the Power of our Community
Located on the western shore of Wisconsin's Lake Winnebago, the community of Oshkosh is centrally located for convenient access to the full spectrum of recreation and activity in Wisconsin. As part of the Fox River Valley region, Oshkosh is a strong, vibrant and increasingly diverse center of arts, culture, education and economy within Wisconsin's New North region.
Citizens for a Strong Oshkosh (CSO) is a group of community leaders who share belief in the power of individual action and the combined power of collection action for social progress.
This does not mean that CSO is not interested or involved, however. The primary objective of the organization is to create an environment or setting in which difficult (and often highly charged) public policy issues can be understood, analyzed and advanced using objective facts and the application of clear-thinking (and fair-minded) policy-based discussions.
