The truth about Janice Arnold-Jones

It is the perfect storm for ethics reform in our Roundhouse.

There will never be a better time to reform state government.

Transparency is fundamental to reform.

There is no legitimate agenda that does not move forward on the day we elect a Governor who will ensure that we know the truth about the spending of our power and our resources.

A Governor like Janice Arnold-Jones.

Her stand on transparency is not one of political expediency.
Her belief in the ability of stakeholders to solve problems,
if only they know the truth, is a matter of long record and
unquestioned sincerity.

She is committed to government that is transparently accountable to the people.

She has the competence, the character and the courage to make it happen.

She stands in stark contrast to her competition; the Richardson administration. At a time when he is refusing to answer questions about his political appointees, Janice Arnold-Jones is prepared to answer any question, any time, any where.

On her website, you will find a list of every question she could think of with respect to positions on issues, and answered them. No other candidate in either party is being as candid, forthright and honest.

His administration is fighting webcasting; she promised to bring it into her cabinet meetings.

His administration is worse than worthless on public records, Denish's Sunshine Portal won't be actually, and honestly, open for years.

Governor Janice Arnold-Jones will be posting them online, real time, just like her campaign contributions.

Transparently accountable government will not happen without a fight. There will be "push back".

Those fighting for transparency need a champion, someone around whom they can rally. Someone behind whom, they can get into the fight. Someone has to be willing to pick up the flag and carry it through the breach.

Janice Arnold-Jones picked up that standard when she carried a web camera into the legislature. She punched a hole in the wall and now stands in the breach.
She has the competence, the character and the courage to lead the fight for government that is transparently accountable to the people.

All that is left is for everyone who believes in transparently accountable government, to stand up beside her.

"All that is necessary for evil to prevail in the world,
is for good men to do nothing." Edmund Burke
Those who wait for the perfect circumstance in order to act,
will find instead, the perfect excuse to never act at all.
