Time for More Transparency in Kansas Government

(Flicker Photo by hjl)

If you haven't heard, this is National Sunshine Week! And no, we're not talking about the weather. This is the week when advocates for open and transparent government celebrate public access to information. Guest Commentator Ron Keefover says sunlight is a great disinfectant... and state government in Kansas could use more of it.

Guest Commentator Ron Keefover is president of the Kansas Sunshine Coalition for Open Government. He's also a former spokesman for the Kansas Supreme Court.
The Sunshine Coalition for Open Government is a statewide organization of journalism and law professors, members of the news media and other private citizens committed to promoting open government in Kansas. Its board members include the executive directors of the Kansas Press Association, Kansas Association of Broadcasters and representatives of the Society of Professional Journalists and the Kansas League of Women Voters, among others. It is located at the Elliott School of Communication at Wichita State University, where the group was founded in 2000.
