Metro’s secrecy highlight of D.C. Open Government Summit

The failure to share information with the public after a fatal electrical fire in a Metro tunnel dominated discussion at the annual D.C. Open Government Summit March 17.

Journalists, civic activists and D.C. government officials traded complaints and suggestions to make local government and the Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority more transparent. The Open Government Coalition sponsored the Sunshine Week event at the National Press Club.
