The Lake County Board voted to require vendors applying for County contracts to disclose campaign donations to Board Members of if they are a close family member of a Board member.
“This is one of the reasons that I ran for office, and I am very proud to have worked hard to pass this ordinance that will bring more transparency and better government to Lake County”, Jennifer stated.
Potential vendors for contracts over $30,000 must now disclose campaign contribution made in the last five years to County Board members, county wide elected officials and political action committees. They must also disclose if they have a family member who are Lake County employees.
“This is a great day for Lake County and another success in our quest to bring greater accountability and transparency to Lake County government”.
