Holding Public Officials Accountable
Do you know what comments are said, decisions are made, and votes are cast by your representatives in your local government? Most likely, your answer is no, just like most everyone else in the county.
What about the Planning Commission, Park and Recreation Committee, Agriculture Advisory Committee, and so many other committees and boards?
Common Threads Northwest is working on creating a monitoring system where people will attend County Council, County Commission, and County Board meetings, report what they see, hear, and votes that are made. In a timely manner we will publish the information they collect so everyone can be informed.
