Organization operates annual Transparency camp, and advertises that it allows interested persons to attend for free, and as volunteers, by registering well in advance, and I received email updates about expected duties and conduct at the event. At very last minute, the event Organizer and Coordinator failed to email nor phone me and others, that we were NOT needed, and, only a few volunteers were actually needed, and that I instead pay to attend. I complained to Director and two top staff members, yet they ignored me and sanctioned this very unprofessional, arrogantly handling of this matter, without reprimanding the Organizer and Coordinator.
Sunlight seriously needs to correct this situation and improve its computerized volunteer registration glitches, and hire MUCH more mature, accountable- under- any -circumstance individuals, and not short-term juvenile interns who dont give a dern about fulfilling job duties or serving the public.

Sunlight seriously needs to correct this situation, by conducting character, even criminal backgrund checks on new hires, and vastly improve computerized volunteer registration glitches. Sunlight should allow more mature, accountable- under- any -circumstance individuals to come into its fold...not any short-term juvenile interns to tackle major duties while not giving a dern about fulfilling job duties, or serving the public.

Sunlight fosters a network of sites that start to bring accountability via transparency to government, Federal, state, and local.

The deal is ultimately to show where money comes from, who gets it, and who gets what in turn.

Sunlight is the big operator in this space, getting done
more than anyone.
