2016 Sunshine Award
The San Diego Chapter of the Society of Professional Journalists is proud to present Maksim Pecherskiy with its annual Sunshine Award for his work to create an open data portal at the city of San Diego. Sunshine Week celebrates the importance of open access, underscores the value of transparent government and reminds the public of their right to government information. As San Diego’s chief data officer, Pecherskiy has done all three.
