In the past four years there have been at least three attempts to restrict our open records laws and change Wisconsin’s mission statement. These attempts were never debated but instead slipped into unrelated bills late at night. Luckily, our news media has alerted us and enough people protested that they were changed.
As someone who has spent the last 17 years working in open government, I take personal and professional offense at this. Good government is effective, efficient, responsive and above all OPEN. Experience good government again.
