Joel Chandler - Florida Open Government Watch 02/15 by High Noon in Lake Worth | Blog Talk Radio

Join me today at noon for another edition of High Noon in Lake Worth.  I am welcoming Joel Chandler, a Florida public information advocate and activist.  Last year, he was honored by the American Society of News Editors and the Reporters Committee for the Freedom of the Press in being winner of the 2012 Sunshine Local Hero Award.  Based in Lakeland, Florida, Mr. Chandler has helped citizens throughout the state with public information requests - filing more than 100 open records lawsuits.  He has an on-line review of government transparency in the state called FOGWatch (Florida Open Government Watch).  This should be poignant and some information might be able to be gleaned in our local efforts to promote open government.
