Transparency Update: July 11, 2017

Recently I’ve been contacted by a few organizations that have invited me to participate in surveys, and will then assign me a “grade” depending on how they score the survey.  They then comment that depending upon the grade they give me, I may receive a public endorsement and even possibly financial donations.

These invitations are valued, however carry with them opaque, indirect elements.  For example, there is no grading rubric provided, nor am I informed on these e-mails who will be be doing the grading and what qualifies them to do so.  I prefer a more deliberative, transparent, and direct discourse.

Currently, I am tabling these surveys due to the concerns I list above.  Early in the campaign I replied to questions from the Salt Lake Board of Realtors, and have the same reservations regarding that survey that I’ve expressed in a different post.  As the campaign progresses, I am learning more and more about how these third party organizations work.  What do you think?  I’m open to and welcome feedback.


The first organization is the Utah Cultural Alliance – here is a screen shot of their e-mail:
