Secretary of State hopeful
Maggie Toulouse Oliver has
joined a long list of politicians
"demanding" more transparency
in state government, link.
In so doing, she becomes only
the latest to demand;
- what is not now and
- what never has been.
Things are the way they are as the proximate result of human nature; power corrupts and the abuse of power is enabled by a lack of transparency.
There is no reason to believe state legislators will do anything any differently than they always have. The best predictor of future performance is past and current performance.
Oliver offers no specific plan to address the nature of politicians, except to heighten the demand that it change.
Good luck Ms. Toulouse Oliver;
let us know how things work out.
