Rio Grande Foundation Transparency Site Goes Live

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.

  1. “Transparency” has become a buzz word for politicians – federal, state and local. Congratulations on launching New MexicoSpending.com. We can only hope that transparency, as a result of your effort and that of Mayor Berry’s, is demanded by the electorate. If it isn’t forcefully demanded by the electorate, the status quo will continue to endure, and your effort will be in vain.
