Sunshine Week: Open government is good government

March 13-19, 2016 is recognized nationally as Sunshine Week 

“Government business must be open; Media must help hold officials accountable,” by Jim Zachary, editor of the Valdosta (Ga.) Daily Times and director of the Transparency Project of Georgia: “Government must be held accountable. The only way for the public to hold government accountable is for all of the actions of government to be out in the open. That is why open government is part and parcel of democracy. When government is allowed to operate behind closed doors, it grows out of control, is not responsive to the public and is subject to corruption.”
