Last week citizens across the country took part in Sunshine Week by celebrating their rights to an open government.
Sunshine Week has ended but enthusiasm for sunshine is far from over.
Right to Know NH (RTKNH) participated in the panel discussion on the Right-to-Know Law organized by the New England First Amendment Coalition and hosted by the Nackey S. Loeb School of Communications.
Our thanks go out to both organizations as well as the following people who participated on the panel.
- Lisa M. English, Senior Assistant Attorney General;
- Rick Gagliuso, attorney and Board member, New England First Amendment Coalition;
- Cordell A. Johnston, attorney and lobbyist, New Hampshire Municipal Association;
- Trent Spiner, President, New Hampshire Press Association
- David Saad, President, Right to Know NH
A special thanks to David Tirrell-Wysocki Executive Director of the Nackey S. Loeb School of Communications for hosting the event and attorney Gregory Sullivan for moderating the discussion which encouraged lively audience participation.
RTKNH looks forward to taking part in Sunshine Week again next year and encourages all members of the public who are interested in open government to attend this once-a-year event. In the meantime, join RTKNH and help us advocate for a more open and transparent government.
Our right to know what our government is doing lasts only as long as our vigilance to insist on it. For RTKNH every week is a Sunshine week. Let the sun shine!
