Nominate Local Champions of Open Local Government

Tell us by Wednesday who in Los Altos has pushed for governmental transparency.

Do you know people in Los Altos or Los Altos Hills who have championed local government transparency? Los Altos 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 that conversation off 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 Wednesday, March 7 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. 

Faced any challenges with government transparency in our town? Share your stories with Cupertino Patch editor Anne Ernst at anne.ernst@patch.com and she will share them with our community.

I realize that this is beyond your deadline but Norma Shroeder (sp?) of losaltospolitico.com deserves recognition. Her site is fantastic and informative.
