Pierce County (!) Creates Ombudsman Post

Pierce County--not exactly known for its open government--announced it will create a public records ombudsman post similar apparently to the Attorney General's.

Pierce County Council member Shawn Bunney pushed the reform and is being honored with a "Key Award" from the Washington Coalition for Open Government. Congratulations.
