Hey Budget Watchers. Just wanted to catch up now that the budget is in the books and starting to affect Ohioans in real ways.

We’ve been working on this site for six months. It’s consumed a ton of personal time and resulted in many late nights. But we’ve really enjoyed the response and dialogue with our readers.

Rather than shutter it now that the budget bill is law, I’m thinking of keeping things going. There are now two years in which the money allocated by this budget will be spent, and someone needs to make sure it’s being done efficiently, effectively and transparently. Many will feel real pain inflicted thanks to cuts in this budget and their ripple effect. We think someone needs to document that.

We hope you’ll keep reading – sign up for our Twitter or Facebook feeds, or subscribe by RSS to make sure you find out about new posts, because they may be slightly fewer and further in between. We are also going to do more blogging about issues unrelated to the budget over at our sister site, Plunderbund.

We also hope to recruit a few new contributors. Even if all you do is email us a tip about a local impact of the state budget, or about improper spending you see at a state agency. We’ll look into everything, and if it pans out, we’ll blog about it. And, if you want to write a guest post or become a regular contributor, get in touch!

Our email is “editor”@ohiobudgetwatch.com (remove the “s before sending)

Thanks everyone, it’s been fun!
