“As government officials, it is our obligation to serve the public with integrity and openness while being accountable for the taxpayers' dollars that we have been entrusted with. Transparency in government is not just a requirement, but an obligation that is a part of our servitude to our constituents,” states Trustee Reynolds.
The importance of transparency in government is to continually build upon the trust between the government and the public. To provide an open stream platform that will enable the public to be served to see that the decisions and actions being made by those they elected into public office are serving them to the best of their ability.
“I believe that transparency is a fundamental right for those that I serve and will continue to provide an open book platform to enhance government transparency.”
