Description

Reporters set out to see how accessible local government in the viewing area is to citizens. A local taxpayer was hired to ask more than 30 government agencies, school districts and police departments for records. These requests included financial records, documentation of reimbursements and emails from top public officials, all of which should have been open to the public. But government officials denied access and used intimidation and harassment to discourage further attempts.
