Happy Sunshine Week!

In case you didn't know, March 15-21 marks National Sunshine Week!  It's an initiative by media, schools, civic groups, libraries, and non-profits to open a dialogue about the importance of open government and freedom of information.

Learn more at sunshineweek.org.

"Though spearheaded by journalists, Sunshine Week is about the public's right to know what its government is doing, and why. Sunshine Week seeks to enlighten and empower people to play an active role in their government at all levels, and to give them access to information that makes their lives better and their communities stronger.

"Sunshine Week is a non-partisan initiative whose supporters are conservative, liberal and everything in between."
