SEWRPC Says It Remains Neutral: So Is Transparency Political?

SEWRPC officials tell the Daily Reporter that picking a new Executive Director from within - - without public input and virtually no notice - - maintains political neutrality.


By excluding the public from the process, it merely reinforces the status quo, as SEWRPC acknowledges - - wherein corporate types keep their firm grip on their power and hone their connections.

That imbalance is inherently political. And while technically non-partisan, is there little wonder then that Republicans feel comfortable with SEWRPC's suburban, politically-conservative mindset?
