The Washington Coalition for Open Government will present a special program focusing on Washington’s Public Records and Open Meetings laws from 6:00 to 8:00 PM on Wednesday, June 23 at the Plaza Room above the Edmonds Library, 650 Main Street in Edmonds. 

A panel of expert presenters will fuel the discussion on securing and preserving the public’s legal right to access the records and proceedings of the government agencies created to serve the people of the state. The panelists include: former State Representative Toby Nixon, Tim Ford, Assistant State Attorney General; State Auditor Brian Sonntag, and Jerry Handfield, Washington State Archivist. Neal Pattison, Executive Editor of the Daily Herald of Everett will moderate the discussion.

The forum is free and open to all, and questions and comments from the audience are welcome. This civic event is sponsored by the League of Women Voters of Snohomish County and the Herald, and is presented through the generous support of Stokes Lawrence PC. 

Contact information.   Simlar meetings will be held on Mercer Island this summer.
