Transparency - How Local Government Works

Transparency & Accountability

Citizen participation in local government is alarmingly low. Part of this is because it’s difficult for citizens, with our busy lives, to follow what’s going on–especially with budget and taxes. I want to foster as much citizen engagement in our local government as possible, ensuring everything is out in the open, and closed meetings are strictly limited to the provisions in the Texas Open Meetings Act.

The City Council’s #1 job is oversight, and when it comes to ensuring taxpayers understand where their money is going, I’ll continue to work to make the process as transparent as possible, so the people can hold their elected representatives fully accountable.
