Pursuant to the state open records law, Cal. Gov’t Code Secs. 6250 to 6277, I write to request access to and a copy of electronic copies of each and every e-mailed version of the “Friday Notes” or “Friday Letters” sent from the computers of both Dr. Wendell Alan Jensen and Dr. Yul Whitney since Jan 1, 2006 to the members of the Palo Verde Board of Trustees as a whole. Per the Brown Act workshop given by Dr. J. Hoffman last week, these communications are not to be considered “privileged” or “confidential” and are subject to acquisition through the California Public Records Request Act.
As far as I know, there is no “Sunshine Index” that measures whether federal, state and local agencies are, over time, handing over more public documents or, conversely, making just as much of a fuss when they are asked for them as one supposes they did in the bad old days. If there were, would it show progress?
