From Tampa Bay Times:
Veteran state legislator Mike Fasano was honored Thursday by the First Amendment Foundation for his efforts improving transparency in government.
Foundation president Barbara Petersen praised Fasano’s long record of ensuring the legislative process remains open and accessible while representing the people’s interests, most notably in the 2012 session.
“He has consistently dedicated his time and effort to making sure that the average Floridian has a voice in the process,” Petersen said. “Rep. Fasano has continually proven himself a friend of the people, not just his constituents, but those encountering roadblocks as they try to manage the maze of government bureaucracy.”
