Westerberg Pens Op-Ed for Wisconsin Freedom of Information Council

On Behalf of | Jun 13, 2017 | 2017 News |

Christa Westerberg recently wrote an op-ed for the Wisconsin Freedom of Information Council (WFOIC), which publishes a monthly Your Right to Know column with state-wide distribution. The Wisconsin State Journal, The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, and The La Crosse Tribune were among the many sources that carried her piece to print.

In her column, Westerberg discusses a growing trend among some legislative committees: “the use of ‘mail ballots’ to vote instead of voting during public meetings.” She contends that the secretive practice “threatens transparency – and good government – in Wisconsin” by making it more difficult for citizens “to see and understand what their elected representatives are voting on and why.” To read her piece in full, click here (or one of the three links listed for sources above).
