An open and transparent government is the very foundation of our democracy. Unfortunately, in recent years a culture of exclusion and secrecy has blanketed the Kansas State Capitol like a smoke-filled back room. According to the Center for Public Integrity, Kansas went from being one of the top 10 most transparent states in the country in 2012, to being one of the ten worst in 2015.
We can do better.
Open Kansas is a new, non-partisan initiative to ensure access to public records and meetings, and champion transparency in state and local government.
Everything done on the taxpayer’s dime should be done in the light of day. Ask your elected officials to sign the Open Kansas Transparency Pledge and reaffirm their support of government transparency and accountability to the people of Kansas.
