Ironically, while our Chuukese culture espouses fairness, openness, and hospitality, our government suffers from a lack of accountability and transparency. People have very little knowledge or involvement in the day-to-day operations and policy-making decisions in the government. Because no one is demanding a transparent governance, the political leaders continue to make funding decisions that are not for the greater good of the community. Reform is needed to force all branches of the government have an open and transparent governance system. Efforts must be made to encourage a cultural shift in how people view the government leadership; citizens must be educated to question their elected officials and demand accountability.
