Beggs councilman signs Open Government Pledge

Beggs City Councilman O. G. Corky Thompson has pledged to "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, Thompson 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."

Thompson is seeking another term as the Ward 2 council member in the April 5 election.

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