Let new leaders be committed to transparency
Key government positions in Whiteside and Lee counties changed hands this week. We hope the changes bring a renewed commitment to government transparency.
Elections bring about change. Whether that change will be for the better is not guaranteed.
However, we are generally optimistic that new leaders in Whiteside and Lee counties will support government transparency on the county boards and in the state’s attorney’s offices.
One bump in the road happened last week. Democratic Whiteside County Board members held what we believe was an illegal closed meeting to discuss their next chairman. We filed a complaint with the Illinois Attorney General’s office and await a response.
