Speaker of the House Tom Leonard has insisted that the financial disclosure and transparency website for the Michigan House of Representatives now includes access to salary information for representatives and House employees.
“When it comes to cleaning up government, I believe sunshine is the best disinfectant,” said Rep. Shane Hernandez (R-Port Huron). “I commend Speaker Leonard’s decision to make this information easily accessible for Michigan Taxpayers.”
Representative Hernandez is a strong advocate for increased transparency in all aspects of state government.
“I believe one of the biggest challenges we face as new legislators is that the public simply does not trust their elected officials – often for good reason,” said Rep. Hernandez. “I look forward to working with Speaker Leonard to bring new levels of accountability and transparency to the Michigan House of Representatives and all aspects of state government.”
