NEW HIRES, DAILY SPENDING FEATURED IN CTHRU SITE EXPANSION

By Stephanie Murray

STATE HOUSE NEWS SERVICE

BOSTON, AUG. 8, 2017.....With a few clicks, Comptroller Thomas Shack can easily pull up information on the latest hires at the MBTA, the Department of Children and Families, or any other executive department. He can see an employee's salary, their education, their years of relevant experience and even whether an elected official wrote them a letter of recommendation.

Shack doesn't just have quick access to this information because of his office. Now anyone can access that public information through the comptroller's transparency and open records platform CTHRU, which was expanded to include more government spending data at the end of July.
