Note: March 15 to 21 is Sunshine Week across the country, when media celebrate and encourage open government. As a lead-up to that, we publish this opinion piece by Vermont Secretary of State Jim Condos. He has long been an advocate for open government.
The New England Newspaper and Press Association, The Boston Globe, and this newspaper are working together to encourage newspapers across every state to run an editorial on the importance of open government.
Please join us in raising our collective voice for transparency and access to public information.
