As the saying goes, “all politics is local,” but that’s not really the case if people don’t have real access to their local elected leaders.
In the Assembly, I fought to end shady back-room deals, and when I couldn’t end them I shined a bright light on it to expose the corruption. Sunshine is the best disinfectant.
As County Executive, I’ll bring about a new era of transparency to county government.
We’ll work with our partners in the legislature to:
- Update the county website so the county charter, mission statements, public data, and information are more easily accessible to the public with less need to FOIL
- Make government meetings more readily available online
- Enhance accessibility to the County Executive’s office
- Host annual constituent forums throughout the county just as I did in the Assembly.
I’ll work for you, and be held accountable by you: the people of Putnam County.
