Open Government/FOIA Town Hall Meeting in Traverse City

A community event for those who want a better understanding of how the Freedom of Information Act and Open Meetings Act work.

The Mackinac Center is hosting a series of community events aimed at raising awareness of common problems encountered by those who attempt to request government records and provide information to those who want a better understanding of how the Freedom of Information Act and Open Meetings Act work. Our state has valuable tools for holding public servants accountable but those tools are useless if people don’t know about them or don’t know how to use them. 

Vic McCarty, host of “The Vic McCarty Show” on WMKT AM1270 in Traverse City, will be moderating this event.
