Why are some government agencies so unresponsive to public inquiries?
It's Sunshine Week: a time to examine how well our public offices are performing when it comes to transparency. From schools to government leaders at all levels, we discuss how the system works, how information is occasionally suppressed, and how it can improve. Our guests:
- Berkeley Brean, reporter for News 10NBC
- Meaghan McDermott, reporter for the Democrat & Chronicle
- Justin Murphy, reporter for the Democrat & Chronicle
- Bob Freeman*, executive director, Department of State Committee on Open Government
*Bob Freeman will lead a discussion about the Freedom of Information and Open Meetings Laws on Wednesday, March 16 from 5:30 to 7 p.m. in the first-floor community meeting room at the Rochester Democrat and Chronicle building (55 Exchange Blvd.). The event is free and open to the public.
