View Full Version : What's the ranking of city and state officials?

How does the heirarchy work? I'm guessing the first big position on the list is Mayor of a city, and then it progresses thru various positions up to Governor. Anyone got a basic list of how the ranks look?

Not a hierarchy at all, officially. By virtue of fund raising ability, one official or another might be more influential in his/her party, but that's about all.
Gov is executive of the state, and to a large extent his authority covers all state officials.
But Mayors and County executives and boards of supervisors are not subordinate to anybody but (theoretically) their voters; mayors don't have to listen to governors. The various levels inside California sue each other all the time.

Something like: Liar, Tool, then Puppet? Oh, that wasn't the response you were looking for?
