Kudos for Embracing Open Access

Thank you and bravo to Laguna Beach school board members who voted to support a simple act of transparency: providing public video access to school board meetings.

Government should be in the sunshine. Everyone behaves better when they know that they are being recorded.

One school board member, Bill Landsiedel voted against public access. Not being transparent in 2015 begs the question: What are you trying to hide?
