As an advocate for honest, open and transparent government, (HOTGOVERNMENT).
I take issue of your recent claims of being fierce advocates for the concept of "government in sunshine":
"Journal Times editorial: State's government bodies shouldn't circumvent the open meetings law"
Your board has at best a spotty record of advocating "government in sunshine" and a worse record of publicly holding local government officials accountable for misconduct in office.
Your board and your newspaper has a dismissal record of pursuing the opening of government within Racine county and holding it accountable.
That being said, I will forward the email sent to Mayor Cory Mason and city council members for their consideration regarding the city of Racine operating an "open checkbook".
In part: https://www.johnscreekga.gov/home where you can find the open checkbook to view individually written checks or sort by department expenses. The city of Johns Creek has even provided a tutorial video of how to navigate the checkbook. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_aJjP9DhIgw.
