Voice of OC Holds Government Accountable

The next time you’re standing at the DMV, or the Post Office or the Social Security office, use the time to reflect on this: Unelected bureaucrats are just as responsible to the citizenry for their decisions and actions as elected officials. What a concept! Public workers work for you – not politicians, not special interests, not corporations. The things they do on the job – like emails, and reports, and meetings, is open to public scrutiny. After all, you’re the boss. 

Voice of OC keeps track of your government from the council chambers to the inner sanctum of city hall. How the planning department is permitting construction, building or maintaining roads and policing the city are just a few of the public services that contribute to our quality of life.
