"Transparency Aversion" is Contagious

Nicole Galloway speaking on Sunshine Law

If you know anything about us, you probably know that we advocate for transparency and accountability in our government. So imagine our disappointment when we heard about Auditor Nicole Galloway’s latest audit of over 300 local governments—barely 30 percent (!) of her office’s requests were fulfilled.

We’re disappointed, but sadly, not surprised. Unfortunately, it looks like many of our local government officials are taking cues from many in the state senate who have been openly hostile to transparency, and have repeatedly refused to allow us to record public committee hearings. (We sued them, by the way)

Kudos to Auditor Galloway for calling out these officials. What are they trying to hide anyway?
