Transparency in County Contracts

We all know about the no-bid contracts that have been "unearthed" once again in the County of Corruption. Sweetheart deals, the cronyism, the no-tax deals to big developers, and the same old, same old. We all know it exists, the problem is how to eliminate it. It's time to clean house in all areas of government. It is no longer a representative government by the people and for the people, but a government for the government to be supported by the people.
