Open Government/FOIA Town Hall Meeting
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.
Tony Conley, host of "The Tony Conley Show" on Lansing's WILS AM1320, will be moderating this event.
Our panelists will be:
- Mike Steinberg, Legal Director, ACLU
- Robin Luce-Herrmann, General Counsel, Michigan Press Association
- Patrick Wright, Director, Mackinac Center Legal Foundation
- John Bebow, President, The Center for Michigan/Bridge Magazine
This event is free and open to the public. No RSVP is needed!
The event will be held on Wednesday, July 17, 2013 from 6:00 p.m. - 8:00 p.m.
