The election-night coverage of the 2016 vote began with images of the Clinton campaign team gathering in the Javits Center - under the symbolic glass ceiling.

Most of us have been blessed with an abundance of things, maybe even an excess of material goods. I know I am guilty.
Less than one-third of Americans view elected officials as "honest," and a lack of transparency lies at the core of this distrust.
Could this really be happening in our Valley?
