Last week: It has been said that the world’s greatest disinfectant is sunshine. That means the best way to have a disinfected political process is for all matters of public discussion be in alignment with Florida’s “Government in the Sunshine” laws. The public should be privy to every discussion and decision by any public body. Public officials are prohibited from having any communications with a colleague (even through a third party) about matters that will come before the public.The First Amendment Foundation is on target asking for an inquiry by the state attorney’s office regarding the recent activities by board members of the Orlando International Airport. Start the inquiry and let the sun shine in.
