One of the major criticisms of the Gillette City Council in recent years has been a lack of transparency surrounding the council, particularly in choosing replacements and disseminating potential negative information about sitting council members. What level of transparency should residents expect from their elected officials?

I wouldn’t say total transparency should be expected because there are some issues where legal discretion is needed.

When it comes down to it, the council is spending the taxpayers’ money and representing the people of their wards and should be as transparent as possible.
