Los Angeles Goes Transparent

Hosted by

A recent study of 30 cities showed that Los Angeles was seventeenth in transparency, way behind New York, Chicago and San Francisco. LA officials promised for years to open up city records so the taxpaying public can find out how the money's being spent. Now, the newly elected Controller, Ron Galperin, has done it, putting enormous gobs of raw data online at Control Panel LA.
