Port of Port Angeles Receives Open Government Key Award
The Washington Coalition for Open Government has recognized the Port of Port Angeles Commission for using transparency and citizen participation in its search for the agency’s new executive director.
Senior coalition board member George Erb presented a Key Award to the port commission during a public meeting Sept. 12 at the port’s headquarters in Port Angeles. The coalition presents Key Awards to individuals and organizations for actions that advance the cause of open government.
Transparency and public participation are building blocks of good government.
The Coalition was formed to act as an independent, non-partisan, non-profit organization dedicated promoting and defending the People’s right to know in matters of public interest and in the conduct of the public’s business. The Coalition’s driving vision is to help foster open government processes, supervised by an informed and engaged citizenry, which is the cornerstone of democracy.
