I read your ideas about transparency and think they are good. The problem we really face in making transparency effective is the interaction with the people. Here are my suggestions for your program that will insure it will work:
1. Link transparency with accountability (you and other elected officials listen and follow the will of the people)
2. Respond to ideas proposed by those you may not like (Republicans, Tea Party, etc.)
3. Act on the input from your constituents!
Our system is really simple if you remember what it was designed for, each person is considered equal in value and each has a say, if they choose to.
I like this system because it takes 50 people to agree before you have to answer but when 50 people from your district do pose a question or have a comment that you should respond to I hope you will.
Again, transparency is only valuable if there’s accountability associated to it.
Will you be accountable to the people of your state?
