Why can’t Santa Fe do transparency?

I provided a few comments for this article which appeared in the Santa Fe New Mexican. Seems like the City of Santa Fe would rather not post salaries at all if they can’t provide a searchable database like the City of Albuquerque has done.

Certainly, Albuquerque’s efforts at transparency are to be emulated, but that doesn’t mean you can’t start somewhere. In the meantime, check out what we got when we requested payroll information from the City of Santa Fe.
