Open Government Means Transparency and Accountability

Before Put Oradell First successfully broke the one-party stranglehold on Oradell, Council and Board meetings were not televised. If an Oradell citizen could not attend a meeting for any reason, then they would not be part of the discussion.

Put Oradell First fought long and hard to bring about these televised meetings. The first installation of equipment was completely paid for by an $8,000 grant by Cablevision.

Oradell deserves the transparency in government that Put Oradell First continues to champion. Our town is a better place because of it.

We also introduced the ordinance that prohibited "pay-to-play" in Oradell. This introduced fairness to the municipal bidding process and reduced Oradell's costs.
