Courant declares Government Accountabiliy priorty for 2012 – we applaud

Courant Editorial  First, Make Government Accountable <read>

A democratically elected government must be accountable to the people it serves. It must be organized to provide necessary services efficiently and economically. It must avoid waste and duplication.

In 2012, The Courant’s editorial board will make accountability in government a top priority, along with fair play in Connecticut politics and job creation in the state.

We agree with all three goals: Accountability in Government; Fair Play in Politics; and Job Creation. CTVotersCount is especially associated with accountability in the elections arena of government and election integrity which are basic components and prerequisites for fair play in politics.

It extends well beyond the state, state employee accountability, and reasonable pensions.

Like state employees, most election officials aim for integrity. All must be accountable for fully following laws and procedures. Elections should be independently audited to provide the value, integrity, and confidence the public deserves and democracy requires.
