EFFINGHAM, IL. (ECWd) -
As citizens, we don't just have the right to expect local governments spend our tax dollars legally and transparently--we have the responsibility to hold them accountable when they don't. But how can you keep your local government honest?
Join Americans for Prosperity Foundation and the Edgar County Watchdogs, Saturday, May 6th to learn how to use the tools at our disposal to make a difference. Hear from the two founders of the Edgar County Watchdogs, who have used publicly-available information and the state's Open Meetings and Freedom of Information Laws to expose waste, fraud, abuse, and corruption in their hometowns and across the state.
