Promises about Transparency on Fitz-O-Meter

Make public his calendar of appointments

In a Plain Dealer survey, FitzGerald pledged he would make public each year his calendar of appointments, meetings and county-related travel.

Publish a list of gifts received

In a Plain Dealer survey, FitzGerald replied yes to the question, "Will you pledge to make public each year an itemized list of the gifts you receive as county executive and the exact value of each gift?"

Release public records on demand

In a Plain Dealer survey, FitzGerald said he would make records deemed public under the Ohio Revised Code available to county residents on demand.

Conduct business in the open

"FitzGerald will ensure that the decision making process of county government is open and transparent. Only by conducting our business in the open can we restore public trust in local government. Transparency not only discourages questionable dealings, it also yields better public policy by encouraging public participation."

Post CountyStat dashboards online

"Online-accessible performance measure dashboards will be available on the county's website."
