The objective of this article is to demonstrate the idea of Public administration for describing from the Traditional public administration (TPA) to governance, particularly in local government level. Generally, it has been known that TPA is out of date. It cannot use in the current situation due to the streaming developments of globalization. As a result, the bureaucracy is sluggish, leading to the lack of competitive advantages. The New Public Administration (NPA) and New Public Management (NPM) are one of the interesting keys to come across this problem that they interested in the services and satisfactions of people.  In addition, it can gain the profit from these ways. Then the next as New Public Service (NPS) is used instead of both former concepts. It changes the viewpoints for treating people from "clients" to "citizen". The actual meaning of citizen is defined as a person who has the rights, freedoms and duties to achieve for contributing to the society. This idea is the important basis for creating the concept of governance that focuses the main action of people sector as active actor and public sector as facilitator. The public sector will perform in collaboration. Moreover, the acting as facilitator will provide deliberative democracy to community. Therefore, Thai local governance is the appropriate section for using the concept of governance.
