So much for transparency in the First State. Delaware Online Checkbook has been updated faithfully with July FY2017 transactions. But for the State of Delaware Online Credit Card transactions, nothing. It is now September 13th. What is the holdup? Are the citizens of Delaware not entitled, by law, to know what employees of the state are spending on procurement cards? Is there something they don’t want us, the taxpaying citizens of Delaware, to know? This should have been up on this website by August 15th.
When we have an Auditor of Accounts office not showing transparency behind an employee put on a very bogus leave of absence and certain inspections are either revised or canceled it makes me very concerned about how our state pretends to be transparent. Actions speak louder than words, and this is just another countless example of Delaware being non-transparent to its citizens. Once again I have to ask: Who watches the Watchmen?
