Jet incumbent signs Open Government Pledge

Jet's clerk-treasurer has promised to "comply with not only the letter but also the spirit of Oklahoma's Open Meeting and Open Records laws."

Donna S. Keller is seeking re-election in the general election Tuesday.

By signing FOI Oklahoma's Open Government Pledge, Keller also promised "to support at every opportunity the public policy of the State of Oklahoma that the people are vested with the inherent right to know and be fully informed about their government so that they can efficiently and intelligently exercise their inherent political power."

FOI Oklahoma began the Open Government Pledge in 2008 as part of a national effort to spur public commitments to government transparency from candidates for president down to city council contests.

Instructions and a list of signers for the 2011 and previous elections can be found on FOI Oklahoma’s website.
