Candidate for Jet Board of Trustees signs Open Government Pledge

Carolyn Crossette has promised to "comply with not only the letter but also the spirit of Oklahoma's Open Meeting and Open Records laws" if elected to the Jet Board of Trustees on Tuesday.

Crossette is one of five candidates for the board. The top three vote-getters win four-year terms.

By signing FOI Oklahoma's Open Government Pledge, Crossette 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."

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.

Eighteen candidates in Oklahoma have signed the pledge this year.
