EAST LANSING (WKZO) -- Michigan State University has completed its latest State of the State survey, which gauges the amount of trust that citizens have in their government, among other things. Charles Ballard, with the MSU Institute for Public Policy and Social Research, says the survey found that people have much more trust in their local governments than they do in state or federal government.
He says that could be because most people can actually relate to the individuals who serve in those local bodies. An exception to that rule is in places that are perceived to be poorly run, like Detroit.
