Pierce County employees receive open government award

From Patch:

A team of Pierce County employees who redesigned part of the county’s website to make it much easier for citizens to access public records were honored Wednesday by the Washington Coalition for Open Government.

WCOG President Toby Nixon presented the organization’s Key Award to county communications director Hunter George, the project sponsor Diane Ladenburg and justice services director Al Rose. A fourth team member, county webmaster Angela Gow, has since left the county for the private sector.

The Washington Coalition for Open Government is a member of NFOIC. –eds
