The Announcement

I am running for auditor of the Commonwealth.  I agree with Louis Brandeis that sunlight is the best disinfectant.  As such intend to use my technical expertise to make sure that we put all the books for all the agencies in Massachusetts onliner all the time.

Every citizen of Massachusetts ought to be able to at any moment, look and see how any agency has spent their money so far this year.  The current auditor's office is very far behind schedule in auditing.  Why not crowd-source the fiscal audits by allowing the public to have direct oversight of spending.

The current Open Checkbook system is terrible.  It's filled with broken links and is indecipherable to such a level that it seems deliberate.  We can replace this with simple spreadsheets online that explain where every dollar for every department goes.
