1,000 People in Our Seat
Sunshine Week - Editors' Note
March 15, 2018
SEELEY LAKE – We take our seat and flip on our recorder. Often the only "public" in the room, we represent more than 1,000 readers. Many of the local boards welcome us because our articles provides the public information about what they are doing while others would rather conduct their business without the publicity. But it's not about publicity, it's about sunshine.
The week of March 11-17 is the 17th annual Sunshine Week. News outlets nationwide will promote the idea that democracy works only when government discussions and decisions are made in the open or "in the sunshine."
