Schneider will be presenting the seminars to Attorney General Gentner Drummond. Schneider’s objective is to answer questions concerning the state’s open meeting and record laws and inform elected appointed officials about their responsibility under the acts.
Drummond has made his statement that openness and transparency in government are his top priorities. He states, “It is important to establish the standard of transparency to ensure our public officials are acting with honesty and integrity. I am thankful for the hardworking individuals in my office who are also dedicated to these principles, and who work tirelessly to educate others about the Open Meeting and Open Records Acts across the state.”
