On this last episode, we look back on 23 years of joyous, difficult and always informative conversation.
Traci Hughes, who directed the D.C. Office of Open Government for the past five years, will not be reappointed to her post after taking decisions against the city. The office is the watchdog to ensure the District’s public boards and commissions comply with the Open Meetings Act and that its agencies comply with the Freedom of Information Act. Hughes noted on the show that she’d been pressured over some of the decisions by her office, and she suggested resisting that pressure contributed to the decision by Mayor-appointed Board of Ethics and Government Accountability not to reappoint her.
