Thanks for standing up for transparency | Letter to the editor

To the editor:

The League of Women Voters of Kitsap commends the editorial staff of the Bainbridge Review for raising community awareness of the threat to open government in a recent proposal to exclude the public from meetings of volunteer advisory committees. We believe that such breaches of the Freedom of Information Act (1966) and Sunshine Act (1976) endanger the health of our democracy.

Government transparency regulations must be followed at all levels by every agency, board and committee that involve taxpayer supported projects. We thank The Review for so eloquently supporting the citizen’s right to easily access public information.
