Oregon AG boosts focus on public access

John KrogerOregon’s attorney general,  has appointed a public records czar.

(Newspapers: Let’s stop calling heads of departments “czars” in 2010.  When you call someone in charge of public access to government records a czar…it’s time to Stop Using That Word.)

Attorney Michael Kron is Kroger’s designee to develop standards for government transparency in Oregon.

Besides designating one person as the go-to for questions and standards about public access, Kroger has made other improvements, such as putting this manual online. It used to cost $25.00.   The AG’s office has also produced a Citizen’s Guide to Oregon’s Sunshine Law.
