In Md., government not held accountable [Letter]

Who in local and state government is in charge of watching and controlling how our tax dollars are spent ("Pratt, Young object to plan to hire outside auditors for city agencies," March 20)?

We know that Gov. Martin O'Malley wasted over $200 million on a health care exchange that does not work. We have seen public employees in Baltimore being paid the wrong salary for years. When are Maryland voters going to demand accountability from government employees like the private sector does?

Maybe voters need to remind our elected officials it's not their money and that most of us work hard and pay for our own benefits.

J. Heming, Baltimore
