Stillwater City Council candidate promises open government
An OSU faculty member has pledged to comply with the letter and spirit of Oklahoma's open government laws if elected to the Stillwater City Council.
In signing FOI Oklahoma's Open Government Pledge, Gina Noble 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."
Noble is a clinical assistant professor with OSU's School of Media and Strategic Communications.
She is running against incumbent Philip Pina for Council Seat 2. The election is April 2.
FOI Oklahoma began the Open Government Pledge in spring 2008 as part of a national effort to spur public commitments to government transparency from candidates for president down to city council contests.
Signers are listed on the FOI Oklahoma website.
