It’s Sunshine Week, a week to promote open government.
Since you are reading an editorial column in this newspaper, you likely care about what is going on in your community and with your government. This is a good thing and unfortunately not common enough.
Let me encourage you to also care about open, transparent government on the local and state levels.
Without open government, you don’t know how your tax dollars are spent, how your public bodies make decisions, or if our laws are being enforced efficiently and with equality.
