Subject: Sunlight e-alert from CBGNY - Nowhere to Hide!!Project Sunlight [Sunlightny.org] is up and running. This website is an on-line gateway to several NY State databases that allows you to access and search information on Campaign Finance, Member items, bills, lobbyists and government contracts.Blair Horner, formally of watchdog group NYPIRG, is coordinating this project for the Attorney General. He presented information on Sunlight in person to CBGNY inc. members and guests this past summer and we look forward to an update in late January. Stay tuned.If you find yourself with some extra time during the holidays, take a look at the site and research your local state representatives. Since this site is new, users are invited to send suggestions about navigation, usability and other databases that should be made available. Your suggestions will be considered for upgrades in 2008.Transparency and accountability are badly needed New York State government. This project is a good start and is part of the equation. Another part is the scrutiny of concerned citizens like you. Remember the phrase "Follow the Money" and you could be the first to find something "Very interesting" within the databases. If you do, let the public know.Enjoy these holidays and the start of the New Year. Thank you for your support and interest, and hopefully, 2008 will be a year of continued real reform.Stu BergerPresident, CBGNY, Inc.
