you can include me in a list of people that would like this data. 

didn't this group start a project to speed up FOIA requests a while ago?
Maybe I"m just thinking of Frank's Trello "Open Data Wishlist" https://trello.com/b/Cg6O3LgE/nyc-open-data-wishlist

Thanks John.

Can I include you in the list of people that would want this data.

It would be helpful if we had a group of concerned citizens that agree to sign on for the request AND a system where we  track the request and the responses and the people that respond within the NYC DOF etc.

Because what usually happens is you ask for some information.

You get a letter or email many months later saying that NYC DOF will supply the information in 45 days

Then 45 days pass and you have to remember to remind them about the request and then the process starts all over again.

If we had a public transparent with the real names and offices responsible for the production of the data we could let everyone see what a good or bad system we have.

Is there such a system today?


For goodness sake, I see all the effort made in Campaign Finance reform.  Why? possibly because those running for office want to make sure that they are not ganged up upon by other  large money interests.

From listening to the hearings, it appears that current representatives ideal democracy is where the general public can easily text message money and contributions to them.  IS THAT DEMOCRACY?  BIZARRE! 

We should have a Open Data and Transparency Board.  Do we have that?

Might it be worth FOILing the historical assessment data from DoF?
