“Turkeys don’t vote for Christmas, and politicians are not inclined to want more meaningful or thorough oversight of them or to disclose more of their financial interests. It’s called local government, but it doesn’t mean that it’s any less important than national government.  For that reason, public have to have confidence that it’s being managed and overseen as it ought to be.” John Devitt, CEO Transparency International.
