I posted a while back on how the governance and transparency at Muni needs radical changes (here). Let me be clear: Muni remains a key asset for the city and needs to be preserved as a viable entity. At the same time, the lack of accountability and transparency is totally unacceptable. Mayor Thane is right to veto the council’s decision especially given her points outlined in her blog. (A must read blog IMHO) The Gazette article is here.
I’d like to gently remind the council that Muni is a public asset and as such, the principles of accountability, transparency, sound governance and protecting the public interest must hold. Anything less is unacceptable.
