Our government was created by our founders to be accountable to its citizens. Democracy requires transparency to work. Self-governance requires that people be informed of what our government is doing and to participate in the decision making process. Our elected officials have the obligation to help our citizens navigate resources, be facilitators of information, speak up for the needs and concerns of all communities. Sunshine and open government laws require certain information and proceedings of government agencies to be open or available to the public. Sunshine laws are what enable holding the government accountable and to enable the people to see what the government is doing and perhaps failing to do.
