  1. It was a good training! And even though it was intended for government officials, the organizers allowed myself and two members of the media to attend.

    William Varga of the Maryland AG’s office put an emphasis on satisfying requestors and avoiding unnecessary delays. That sort of thing might seem obvious to those of who are passionate about open government, but some people in government do need to be reminded.

    Thanks for collecting these sorts of news items. It is a useful service to those of us fighting the good fight out there. I learned about things like checkbook registers and the concept of affirmative disclosure from this site.
