C'est Vrai



Government transparency is the basis for informed consent by its citizens.

Bonjour ! Et bienvenue !

C'est Vrai was released in 2021 in a beta version. A Web application that is powered by a database, C'est Vrai focuses on relationships between individuals or entities attempting to influence Government. The collection and presentation of this information helps journalists write and edit articles about the role of money in politics. C'est Vrai also educates the public about civics.

C'est Vrai is under continual development.

Under the Politique menu option, you can view two index pages of select individuals and entities with power, authority, or discretion to influence Government in New York.

Les Actualités. This is the main index page, which lists Significant Government officials and special interests, who are making news. Since C'est Vrai is in active development, names may appear as data is being compiled. However, only a select few entries will yield basic information that will be presented on a Dashboard.

Le fonctionnaire quotidien. This index page provides an example of some of the advanced network analysis that is made possible with C'est Vrai. The entry can change from time to time, but, initially, the focus of this advanced preview will be Mayor Eric Adams (D-New York).
