Members of a group that formed in 2007 to shed more light on the St. Louis County Board of Commissioners say their first year has proven eye-opening and at least partially successful.

We Are Watching formed during a tumultuous year on the County Board when two commissioners were accused of sexual harassment of county employees and at a time the board was regularly fighting among themselves.

The group's leaders say they avoid taking stands on specific issues and try to avoid political debates, instead focusing on behavior and process.

We Are Watching this morning will mark its first year by releasing a "report card'' of all seven commissioners based on several key votes and actions over the past year.
