It seems that none of the existing cities (eg, San Francisco, Anchorage, Sacramento, Louisville, etc) that say they have posted open Asset Disclosure data have met the description.
All contain top level employee’s salaries only.
No other info on other top-level government officials, like investment information, prior and current business relationships, real estate interests, and personal income (including gifts and travel or speaking payments) is public. Also, I’m not sure what ‘top-level’ covers in the description, or if all this data should be disclosed for non-elected city officials.
So my questions are:
- Does a city have to post all of the above for Asset Disclosure to be valid?
- Isn’t disclosing all of that for non-elected city employees a bit of a privacy issue? I don’t think any city will ever do this.
- What is the definition of ‘top-level’?
Thanks for any input on this.
