“If you work in government, here’s something to remember: You work for the people,” writes Kelley Shannon, executive director of the Freedom of Information Foundation of Texas.
“It’s your job to ensure citizens can interact with their government and have the information they need to hold it accountable. That includes handing over public records when someone requests them.”
Unfortunately, that’s not happening everywhere in Texas, Shannon writes.
“Texas is experiencing a wave of blocked or delayed access to public information.”
