Pierce County Considering Adding Open-Government Ombudsman and Adopting AG's Model Rules

"A public hearing on adding an open government advocate to Pierce County as well as model open government language to the Pierce County code has convinced County Councilman Shawn Bunney, R-Lake Tapps, he should proceed on both ideas."
OG-blog thinks Pierce County could really use some open-government improvement. Kudos to county councilmember Shawn Bunney for thinking of this and moving forward on it. Once again illustrating that open government is not a partisan issue, Attorney General Rob McKenna (R) and State Auditor Brian Sonntag (D) testified in favor of the proposal.
