Do you know people in Westwood or Century City who have championed local government transparency? A member of your neighborhood council or someone in Councilman Koretz's office?
Westwood-Century City Patch is participating in Sunshine Week 2012, which begins on March 11, by promoting the Sunshine Week organization’s national Local Heroes contest. We’ll also be talking up, covering and conversing with you about open government and freedom of information on our site during that week so stay tuned.
This week we want to kick off that conversation with a call to action to you to nominate local open-government champions who have played a significant role fighting for local government transparency.
The deadline for nominations is Monday Feb. 20, so put this on your Must Do list right away. The winner will be honored in Washington. We'll share the winners with you.
Here’s a link to the Sunshine Week nomination form.
