Do you agree with the report from the Center for Public Integrity rating Michigan’s state government as last in the nation for transparency and accountability?
I do and that’s why I support immediate reforms such as:
1. Expand the Freedom of Information Act to include the legislature and governor (currently held up by Republicans in the state senate)
2. Require financial disclosure from elected officials and strict rules to recuse themselves in cases conflicts of interest
3. Add a mandatory waiting period before an elected official can become a lobbyist
It’ll be more wasted taxpayer dollars and unfixed problems until we demand that politicians work in the open.
