I attended a conference this weekend where I heard Debra Gersh Hernandez, national coordinator of Sunshine Week, talk about plans for Sunshine Week 2006. Like the first event this year, the week will be devoted to raising public understanding of the importance of open government.

In the course of her talk, Hernandez announced that she has launched a Sunshine Week blog. It will provide news and commentary about open government and freedom of information issues, with particular focus on planning for the March 12-18, 2006, event.

I previously wrote about the Sunshine Week Web site here and provided a round-up of Massachusetts papers’ participation in this year’s Sunshine Week here.
