De Blasio Wants Some Local Sunlight, Too

City Councilman Bill de Blasio wants to create a web site to track how New York City will spend the billions of dollars in stimulus funding coming here from Washington.
“The future of our city depends on making sure this federal aid is spent wisely and fairly. SunlightNYC will allow the public to see exactly how their money is being used, providing much needed accountability and transparency to the process,” de Blasio said in a public statement.
De Blasio’s site is intended to account for how each federal dollar is spent locally–sort of an other-end version of the White House site, Recovery.gov, according a de Blasio aide.
