During Sunshine Week, and every week, open government is good government



In observance of Sunshine Week this week, LNP published a recent editorial citing examples of local freedom of information stories.
One paragraph in particular stands out:
"We would expect council and the borough's open records officer to be responsive at the next meeting and make board packets available to the public in some form as required under the state's Right-to-Know Law, especially since Councilman Hans Seidel publicly agreed with Haigh."
Although this refers to the Mount Joy Borough Council, it is a good practice for all local government boards.
