With Albuquerque Mayor Richard Berry having recently announced the City’s transparency site, ABQ View, transparency in government has taken center-stage. We at the Rio Grande Foundation share concerns about open government and transparency and are pleased to launch NewMexicoSpending.com. The site includes payroll data and vendor transactions from several of New Mexico’s school districts. Unfortunately, some school districts like APS, Santa Fe, and Las Cruces were less than cooperative.
More information on the site can be found here.
