Government transparency is not something we can take for granted. We have to let our elected leaders know we expect it and hold them accountable when they don’t come through. It’s also important we recognize when they do.

The Courier-Tribune’s motto is “Willing to praise, not afraid to blame.” This newspaper has run columns and editorials in recent months highlighting attempts to diminish government transparency. Now it is time to praise some of our legislators who have helped uphold this vital component of our democracy.
