Today marks the start of Sunshine Week — the annual celebration of the idea, so central to our democracy, that government works best when it operates in full public view. I’m going to mark the occasion this year by doing something I need to do more frequently.
I’m going to request a set of public records about a topic that recently has caught my interest. I can’t say for sure if the records I’m going to request will lead to an editorial or a news story. But they might.
