24 Days Of Local Sunlight – Day 4


Today I’m thankful for Taxing Tennessee!  The blogger is Ben Cunningham and he is a watchdog on a mission with a focus on spending and taxes.   While his main focus is Tennessee and federal spending (he pointed out the expenditures for his state delegation) he won’t shy away from keeping tabs on other states as well.  This week he has a post about Georgia’s GOP resigning over a lobbying scandal.  The principle feel of the blog is that accountability belongs in the hands of government’s keepers, the citizens that give elected officials their jobs.

I think his biline says it best “This is the personal weblog of Ben Cunningham with thoughts about taxes, freedom, and the most powerful and important unit of government: The Individual, Sovereign Citizen.”

  • Thank you so much for pointing me to this blog! I will add it to my reading list.

  • There’s a great blog in Oakland, CA that’s an amazing watchdog over local government, called ABetterOakland.com. The author, V Smoothe, does a huge amount of research and has provided the means for more citizens to be engaged in Oakland government. She posts a lot and tackles serious and complicated issues. Please check it out.

    Thanks for highlighting local blogs and their contributions!
