Louisville bloggers are uniting in an effort to force the mayor to open the city's books for public scrutiny. This is not a partisan issue, and we can all agree that we need to see what is going on with the money in City Hall.

I agree, we all have a right to know what is going on with our tax money!

I agree 100%. The only problem is that there are a lot of people out there who will not know how to interpret some of the information held within, leading to many false accusations...just something to be aware of.

I have a question. Although we live in Oldham County, my wife and I pay over $ 2,000 in Jefferson County Sinking Fund taxes per year. How can the Mayor suddenly announce a $ 20,000,000 short-fall? What the heck is the city paying for with our money? I don't pick on the Mayor, but I think this just shows that all governments have overstepped their reasons to exist. Pubic Safety and transportation.... remember all the utilities are paid out of separate tax/service accounts.

$ 20,000,000 short? amazing....

We would know more about why the city is supposedly $20 million short if we could see the accounting evidence. That is why it is so important to have this become reality.

I mean, really...if the state government of Kentucky is willing to do it, why not Louisville?
