Fairness, accountability and transparency matter

Letter to the Editor
Sunday, November 4, 2018

Editor,

It is my understanding that is there is only one candidate for San Marcos City Council who did not file his financial reports in a timely manner.  Thus early voters were not given sufficient lead time to make informed decisions about the possible influence that financial interests might play into his service as a city councilman.

This disregard or neglect on his part in missing this deadline is especially disturbing to me for these reasons:  its unfairness to the other candidates in the race; the importance of this form in determining conflicts of interests; and a lax attitude on the part of the candidate in meeting deadlines.  

Fairness, accountability and transparency are essential elements in sustaining a healthy democracy at all levels of government.

Respectfully submitted,

Karl W. Brown
