Secretary of State Jim Condos Announces Fourth Biennial Statewide Transparency Tour
Montpelier, VT—Secretary of State Jim Condos is pleased to announce the start of his fourth biennial Transparency Tour. The tour will stop at 12 locations across the state to discuss transparency and open government, Vermont’s Public Records Act, and Open Meeting Law with municipal and state employees and citizens who serve on local government boards. The public is invited and encouraged to attend.
“With trust in government at an all-time low, I believe that sunshine is the best disinfectant” said Secretary Condos. “Vermonters deserve openness and transparency in government. By educating municipal and state employees, elected officials, and engaged citizens on the requirements of government under Vermont’s Open Meeting Laws and the Public Records Act I hope to help government officials of all stripes better serve Vermonters.”
As a longtime proponent of open government and transparency Secretary Condos looks forward to engaging attendees in an informative discussion on the requirements of government officials, and the rights of Vermont citizens. Let the sun shine in!
