Views from the Linn County Auditor: Transparency: Walking the talk

Excerpted from this post at Views from the Linn County Auditor

One of the words frequently batted around in discussions about
government is the word "transparency". Wikipedia defines transparency
as implying openness, communication, and accountability. One of my
on-going goals has been to walk the talk when it comes to transparency
in my office. For example, since taking office on February 20, 2007,
we have added or updated 388 of the 532 documents posted on the
Auditor's portion of Linn County's web site. We have posted Election
Results, GIS Data, Accounts Payable information, Flood Related
Contracts, Minutes of Board of Supervisors meetings, and many other
documents.
