Staten Island Borough President James S. Oddo has taken numerous steps to make his office as transparent as possible. This includes putting on social media information about the meetings he is holding as they are occurring, communicating with constituents directly via social media, and using the media to help find applicants for the community board and other positions. In line with that philosophy, Oddo has created this “Transparency Portal” that contains scanned copies of many constituent-related and issue letters online for public viewing. While many constituent issues deal with personal matters or contain personal information and will not be put online, there are large numbers of issues that do not involve personal matters or include personal information, such as DOT requests, and these will be placed here on the Transparency Portal for public viewing. Content will continue to be added and tagged by agency and topic for easy searching.
