Last fall, the San Diego County Board of Supervisors announced it was forming a transparency committee to look into ways to make government more accessible and open to the media and members of the public. Supervisors Nora Vargas and Joel Anderson are leading the committee. SPJ-SD has met with representatives from their offices to discuss issues about county communications officers’ responsiveness to reporters and the county’s current processes for handling public records requests.
Here is our latest correspondence with the committee; the letter was also sent to Supervisors Nathan Fletcher, Jim Desmond and Terra Lawson-Remer. If you have any questions about the letter or concerns you’d like us to share with the committee, send an email to: email@example.com.
