Norman council candidate signs Open Government Pledge
A Norman City Council candidate has promised that if elected Tuesday, she and the city government "will comply with not only the letter but also the spirit of Oklahoma's Open Meeting and Open Records laws."
By signing FOI Oklahoma's Open Government Pledge, Lynne Miller 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."
Miller, a retired Norman Public Schools principal, is seeking the Ward 5 seat in the election.
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.
