SUNSHINE WEEK: Still Time to Share Your Open Government, Access Stories with APME
There’s still time to tell us your stories about obstacles in your way to gaining access to officials, records and meetings at all levels of government. APME is marking Sunshine Week, March 16-22, by posting your stories and editorials on our homepage. The AP may also use some of the material in its coverage of Sunshine Week.
We also plan to offer a forum to discuss issues related to open government.
Please send your stories and editorials to: http://www.apme.com/?page=Sunshine, firstname.lastname@example.org and to email@example.com .
