The group reminds everyone that one of the hallmarks of a democratic society is that it promotes respect for the public’s right to know about governmental affairs. It is vital in such a society that the public’s business be transacted in an open and transparent manner. It is the right of citizens in a free society to be advised of the qualifications and performances of public officials and the decisions made by those individuals. Citizens also have the right to attend public meetings, ask questions of public employees and to access information about agencies that expend public funds. Call (870) 688-9543 for more information.
