In recognition of Sunshine Week (March 12-18), a national initiative to promote open government, the Telegraph of Nashua, IndepthNH, and the New England First Amendment Coalition are sponsoring a presentation and discussion concerning New Hampshire’s right-to-know law.
Join us Thursday, March 16 from 6 to 9 p.m. for a public event at the Hunt Memorial Building at 6 Main St. in Nashua where experts on the state’s public records law will detail how to get them using the state’s right-to-know law, RSA 91-A, and the state Constitution.
The three-part program will include a presentation on the Right-to-Know Law by David Saad, president of Right to Know New Hampshire and a panel discussing the law from varying perspectives.
If you are experiencing difficulty getting public records, RTKNH members will be available from 6 to 7 p.m. to discuss your case one-on-one with you. Please email RightToKnowNH@gmail.com to set up an appointment, or just show up with your questions.
At 7 p.m., David Saad, president of Right to Know NH will present an easy-to-understand guide to help you know how to obtain public records and exercise your right to know.
Then, First Amendment Attorney Rick Gagliuso will share his experiences fighting for public records for a variety of news outlets since the 1980s. A panel of news reporters, editors and citizens, including Chris Garofolo from the Telegraph of Nashua, and Nancy West from InDepthNH.org, will also be on hand.
