March 16-22 is Sunshine Week in New Mexico and nationwide. Take a moment to celebrate! Sunshine Week focuses on the importance of open government. No open government, no democracy. No transparency, no government accountability.
I care about Sunshine Week both as a citizen and as a former newspaper employee/publisher for 22 years. We relied heavily upon the State of New Mexico’s strong public records and opening meeting acts to help keep public officials accountable and public bodies honest.
