North Dakotans pride ourselves on a commitment to transparency. We also expect our elected officials to commit to it as well. And with that, we demand they show the kind of leadership that we deserve. Ryan Taylor, former state senator and candidate for agriculture commissioner, has a record displaying just that kind of leadership. I was disappointed to learn that our current agriculture commissioner seems to disagree with my expectations of transparency and leadership. Officials at all levels of government in North Dakota make minutes available from their meetings.
