What Happened To Transparency In Government?
Mayor Greg Ballard and the Republican-controlled council promised transparency in government when they assumed the reins of government in January. I've been anxiously awaiting the online posting of economic interest statements for city-county employees and elected officials, but I can't find anything more recent than 2006. The last I heard the administration was advocating scaling back significantly the number of people subject to the statement of economic interest filing. And what happened to that new ethics ordinance anyway? Just asking.
