Sunshine: your fundamental right
March 14, 2019
For government to be of, by and for the people it must be out in front of the people.
The theme for Sunshine Week 2019 is simply, "It's your right to know."
The reason it's your right to know is that it's your government.
From the courthouse, to the statehouse to the White House, it is your right to know what government is up to.
Every deliberation by city council, county commission, the General Assembly or U.S. Congress is the people's business.
Every penny spent by local, state and federal government is your money.
Every document held in the halls of government belongs to you.
