Kudos to Dianne Barrett, Deborah Boyle, Liz Chaplin, Tim Millar, Scott O’Connell, and Laura Rabattini for persisting in their efforts to protect the rights of people to open access of public records.
The Chicago Tribune’s “Watchdog” series featured these board members, including me, in Tuesday’s news focus, “Your government in secret: Public officials blocked out too.”
Thanks to excellent investigative work, Chicago Tribune reporter Noreen Ahmed-Ulah exposed a serious issue affecting government today.
I also wish to thank these Tribune photographers: David Banks, Heather Charles, Lane Christiansen, and David Pierini. Your photos in the print edition were great!
Excellence is the result of caring more than others think is wise, risking more than others think is safe, dreaming more than others think is practical, and expecting more than others think is possible. —Anonymous
