When politics happens in the backroom, guess who never gets a seat at the table.
My experience in business and journalism taught me that trust in institutions depends on transparency in decision-making.
We may not always agree, but you will always know where I stand on an issue … and why.
Some elected officials actually pushed for state legislation that would limit the public’s right to know what’s really going on at City Hall.
I led the charge on a transparency ballot measure that requires private companies to disclose their owners, so the city knows who it’s doing business with. It passed overwhelmingly in November 2018.
That’s why I don’t expect endorsements from those elected officials to be flooding my way.
My job is to represent voters, not politicians.
Like I did with SoccerCity, I will shine a light on deals that are hatched without public input.
