Knowing what your government is doing is the first step in reforming what your government is doing.
The Concerned Citizens for Honest & Open Government has been putting this plan into action, filing Freedom of Information Law requests with the Town of New Hartford -- to hopefully pierce the veil of secrecy that seems to cover Town dealings. When the Concerned Citizens get the scoop, Cathy at New Hartford Online gets it to you.
Of course, the Town kicks and screams in resistance, but the Concerned Citizens have found a partner: THE LAW. Cathy has posted the latest development on her blog.
Keep up the good work!
