Fairness, accountability and transparency matter
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.
