Shedding Some Sunlight

Posted on October 15, 2010. Filed under: Uncategorized |

There’s a website member Dave Mulhall and I have spoken about several times; if you haven’t checked it out, you may want to.

The website is ctsunlight.org.

Here’s the intro to the website:

“Welcome to the CT Sunlight Project – an electronic tool constructed by the Yankee Institute for Public Policy – so that the citizens of Connecticut can look at every line item of state government spending and discover how OUR tax dollars are being spent by the people in Hartford.

The goal of the CT Sunlight Project is to empower regular people to hold State Government accountable for their spending. Bloggers, journalists, students, academics, and average citizens can use this website to see how the State spends our tax dollars, identify corruption, and suggest ways to effectively reduce spending in Hartford.”

The website posts salary and pension information for all government jobs (including towns – now that’s eye-opening!), as well as every check written. You can spend hours lost in this site.
