Young Leaders Circle Forum with E.J. McMahon

Wednesday September 2008


E.J. McMahon Senior fellow, Manhatan Institute; Director, Empire Center for New York State Policy

On September 3rd the Young Leaders Circle welcomed E.J. McMahon, Manhattan Institute senior fellow and director of the Empire Center for New York State Policy. E.J. gave a live demonstration of the Empire Center's recently unveiled website, a bold new weapon in the battle for government transparency. The site gives New Yorkers an unprecedented chance to see where their tax dollars go, offering searchable databases of "pork" projects and other legislative expenses, the entire payroll of state government employees, current teachers union contracts, and more.
