A strong democracy depends on transparency and an informed public. In the name of open government, we would like you to help us build on the wealth of data already available online. Don’t wait for the FOIA. State payrolls, public expenditures, public health data and so on all contribute to ensuring accountability. If you have a database or other documents for Watchdog New England, please contact our editor, Jesse Nankin, with a description of the data it contains and any restrictions.
