State representative signs Open Government Pledge

State Rep. Seneca Scott, D-Tulsa, has promised to support the public's right to know at every opportunity if re-elected Tuesday.

In signing FOI Oklahoma's Open Government Pledge, Scott also promised to "support legislation to strengthen the letter and the spirit of Oklahoma's Open Meeting and Open Records laws."

Scott also signed the pledge when FOI Oklahoma introduced it for the 2008 election.

Instructions and a list of signers for the 2010 elections can be found on FOI Oklahoma’s website.

Founded in 1990, FOI Oklahoma Inc. is a statewide organization actively supporting those organizations and individuals working to open records or provide access to meetings illegally closed. The organization's Board of Directors includes attorneys, educators, elected officials, journalists, librarians and private citizens.
