Sunlight Foundation on Open Government: Cities Get It

Do cities like Portland 'get' open government more than federal officials?

Sunlight Foundation recently celebrated its 9th year of campaigning, lobbying and supporting efforts designed to make government more open and more accountable.

We recently met with Chris Gates, the new President of Sunlight, in Washington DC.

We asked Chris for an update on Sunlight’s work and his perspectives on how receptive government is to the idea of openness and transparency. Chris outlines why city governments are forging ahead while federal government adopts a fundamentally different attitude.

We’ll feature more from the interview with Chris in the coming weeks.
