Over the last several decades, the County Council has given tens of millions of our tax dollars to nonprofit organizations. It is becoming increasingly evident that the process for selecting which nonprofits receive what is flawed to the point of being comical. It is also evident that the County Council has zero accountability as to what happens to those tax dollars that it gives to nonprofits.
Before any more money is given to nonprofits, a more thorough system of evaluating the nonprofits must be put in place. Also, a method for holding the nonprofits accountable must be enacted and it should include the requirement of frequent reports and criminal penalties for wrongdoing.
