All about Sunshine Week

From The MetroWest Daily News:

Transparency laws are meant to make government officials’ actions and decisions open to the public to hold leaders accountable and ensure that citizens can play an active role in the democratic process.

Sunshine Week is an annual, nationwide initiative by news media and transparency advocates to highlight the importance of open government. GateHouse Media newspapers and Wicked Local are participating this year with a look at transparency in the Massachusetts Legislature.
