A candidate for Illinois Comptroller says the new transparency website put out by Comptroller Judy Baar Topinka is “too little, too late.”
In a campaign statement Lt. Gov. Shelia Simon says the repurposed web site has the same info that can be found on the comptroller’s website.
Simon says her first priority, if elected comptroller, would be to identify and prevent local corruption.
Topinka will be in Springfield at the Sangamon County Court House today to unveil “The Warehouse” website where taxpayers can review local financial information and other documents without filing a Freedom of Information Act request.
