Wanted: Hoboken gov’t transparency
They don’t like sunlight…
Hopefully, whomever is elected Mayor in Hoboken in May (or June) can start improving access to public records.
One 411 reader mentioned the website SeeThroughNY and simply said “Wouldn’t this be great for Hoboken?”
The SeeThroughNY website says it’s “giving New Yorkers a clearer view of how their state and local tax dollars are spent. This site is sponsored by the Empire Center for New York State Policy, part of the non-partisan and non-profit Manhattan Institute for Policy Research. SeeThroughNY is a web portal — and more. It’s designed to become the hub of a statewide network through which taxpayers can share, analyze and compare data from counties, cities, towns, villages, school districts and public authorities throughout New York.”
Do you think that’ll ever – ever – happen in this city – or in NJ?
