'Citizen Journalism': necessary for transparency in government

'Citizen Journalism': necessary for transparency in government by
* Martha Brock at, January 30, 2011


COMMENTARY I am revisiting today an issue that I think deserves the special attention of voters and government officials at all levels alike: transparency in government.

My first aricle as a writer was based on observations as a former lobbyist and a long-time political activist and as a former candidate for political office.

I am reposting that brief commentary from July 2010 below this article.I had repeated skirmishes with local, state, and federal officials and staff of government agencies over access to information as a lobbyist, and as I advocated for several private, nonprofits at the NCGA.
