If my ideas as a candidate have already benefitted the citizens of Hillsborough County, can you imagine the benefits to my constituents I can achieve as a Commissioner?
I am thrilled that my idea advocating "putting the County checkbook online" will come to fruition sooner rather than later, as the County Commission unanimously voted at the last BOCC meeting for more transparency in County Expenditures. It's time for the county to increase transparency regarding taxpayer dollars. My candidacy has already scored a VICTORY and had a POSITIVE Impact on the taxpayers of Hillsborough County. See my Press Release below on this issue.
Calvert's Candidacy Forces Crist to the Right
Sharon Calvert announced her candidacy for Hillsborough County Commission, District 2, in March. She immediately stated a key platform issue is to put the County checkbook online to ensure transparency and fiscal accountability. Calvert believes that taxpayers deserve to know where the money is spent and to whom the checks are written. Imitation is the highest form of flattery. Calvert's candidacy has now positively impacted the County. However, it's taken her opponent, Victor Crist, 20 years in political office to arrive at Calvert's position at yesterday's BOCC meeting. Calvert also believes taxpayer-funded lobbying contracts should be online! Perhaps Crist will pirate this idea next! Go to http://votesharoncalvert.com/ to read more about Calvert's campaign.
