RE: REQUEST FOR FULL DISCLOSURE OF ALL LEGISLATURE EXPENDITURES
Dear Representatives and Senators of the 15th CNMI Legislature,
In the interests of fostering a more open and transparent government, the signatories below are writing to you to request full disclosure of all expenditures that have been made by your office in the last two years. Please include expenditures related to discretionary funds, subsistence allowances, travel, and personnel.
As you may be aware, the issue of government accountability has been vigorously discussed at recent public forums. Much interest has been expressed, in particular, in the expenditures of our legislators. Although we are aware that a law was passed by the 9th Legislature to exempt the Legislature from the Open Government Act (Public Law 9-2), we believe nevertheless that as CNMI residents, taxpayers, and voters, we have the right to know how public funds are being spent by our elected officials. We hope that you agree.
To respond to this request, or for further information, please contact Tina Sablan at:
Mailing address: P.O. Box 500994 Saipan, MP 96950
We would greatly appreciate a response within thirty (30) days from the date of this request, no later than May 16, 2007.
Thank you very much for your time and assistance. We look forward to hearing from you soon.
/s/ Eugenio Sablan, Tina Sablan, Roger Ludwick, Glen Hunter, Sapuro Rayphand, Martha Mendiola, Gregorio Sablan, Samuel E. McPhetres, Carmela Sablan, Glen Doutrich
Thanks for your support for helping have an open, responsible and accountable government.
