From The Press-Sentinel:

The sun was shining brightly Sunday to usher in Sunshine Week in Georgia.

As citizens become more involved in local government, show up at public meetings, comment during the allotted times, circulate petitions, protest actions they believe usurp their rights, file open-records requests and hold elected officials accountable, the more the sun will shine on local government.

The darkness of executive sessions and backroom deals casts a cloud over local government and those elected to serve.
