CLEARWATER – The National Association of Counties picked the Spending in the Sunshine website, created by the Pinellas County Clerk of the Circuit Court and Comptroller, as a recipient of the 2014 Achievement Award in the category of Civic Education and Public Information.

Started in 1970, the annual Achievement Award Program is a non-competitive awards program that recognizes innovative county government programs in 21 different categories.

“It is very rewarding to have our financial transparency initiative be recognized in the community, as well as nationally,” said Ken Burke, Clerk of the Circuit Court and Comptroller. “It was my goal to ultimately set an example of what constitutes open government and thanks to the talented staff of the Clerk’s office, this initiative is empowering citizens with every click of a button.”

Spending in the Sunshine is a financial transparency website which goes beyond state standards and actually surpasses the level of transparency many governmental offices offer. It is centered on the public’s right to open government and was designed to provide easy access to expenditures processed within Pinellas County government. Information is available on the clerk’s webpage, www.mypinellasclerk.org, through a tab titled “Spending in the Sunshine.”

NACo is the only national organization that represents county governments in the United States. Founded in 1935, NACo assists America’s 3,069 counties in pursuing excellence in public service to produce healthy, vibrant, safe and resilient counties. For more information, visit www.naco.org.
