In case you care to read them, below are my two latest published pieces for your perusal, and they strike a common theme: transparency in government.
On Nov. 24, the Rocky Mountain News published (printed in the Sunday Denver Post, of all places) my Speakout submission in response to Gov. Ritter’s unionization executive order.
This Sunday, the Pueblo Chieftain published my op-ed calling for greater online transparency of school district budgets. Want to figure out as a taxpayer just how much your local schools are spending on different items? Think it’s easy? Hence, the purpose of the op-ed.
So yes, I’ve been writing on a transparency in government kick lately. It’s an important issue more people on both sides of the aisle might rally around, if given the chance.
