Jet officials sign Open Government Pledge
Two Jet town officials have pledged to "comply with not only the letter but also the spirit of Oklahoma's Open Meeting and Open Records laws."
City Clerk/Treasurer Stephanie L. Carson and Town Trustee Matt Morris were elected in April.
By signing FOI Oklahoma's Open Government Pledge, Carson and Morris pledged "to support at every opportunity ... the inherent right [of Oklahomans] 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 2013 and previous elections can be found on FOI Oklahoma’s website.
