Editorial: Sunshine Week

This year marks the 10th annual nationwide celebration of "Sunshine Week"

Though created by journalists, Sunshine Week is about your right to know what your government is doing, and why.

Locally we have always sought to hold elected officials accountable, and to be a voice for the public's right to know about important issues such as police incident reports, commission meetings and how your tax dollars are being spent…

Georgia Attorney General Sam Olens is a great advocate for open government and his office will prosecute those who fail to adhere to open records/open meetings laws.

We know that transparency in government means nothing, if it is not respected, obeyed, and enforced.
