Government Reform Thoughts

The Town of Westfield this week reached a settlement with police officer Greg Kasko. The town has refused to say how much money he will be paid. At a time when property taxes are skyrocketing in New Jersey, how can the town withhold telling taxpayers how much of their hard-earned money is going to settle a lawsuit? We believe legal agreements involving public entities must be fully disclosed and published, the same as legal notices, and include public hearings.  - See year-to-date reform thoughts.
