Eight Years Later, Walker Provides Accountability


Citing ‘€œnew technology’€ that supposedly didn’€™t exist eight years ago when he took hold of the budget reins of Milwaukee County as its executive, Scott Walker announced yesterday that he, himself,  has ‘€œlaunched a public accountability link’€.From the Walker press release:
‘€œNew technology allows us to post information for greater transparency in government spending,’€ said Walker. ‘€œWe welcome the potential for increased participation from vendors in our community and encourage the public to view where money is spent in county government.’€
