Why Transparency Matters in Local Politics

From 2015, offers a podcast (posted on YouTube) with Kevin Glass, then of the Franklin Center. (Now called the Franklin New Foundation, it’s a center-right organization; many of Glass’s comments – he now works elsewhere – on open government are, however, non-partisan.)

There are similar projects with a center-left focus.  In Wisconsin, for example, the new – and impressive – Wisconsin Examiner offers daily reporting and scrutiny of politics under the editorship of Ruth Conniff, formerly of The Progressive.)

Government is no living organismit’s a mere instrumentality created by people, for people, under well-defined laws, for their protection, and the advancement of their limited, common objectives.
