April 9 La Mesa City Council Meeting is cancelled. Was it the right thing to do?

Helix Water District Check Register, Del Mar School District pays big $ for hiding emails!

The LMCOG has obtained the Helix Water District check register for payments of expenses through March 2013. We encourage our local agencies to be forthcoming and timely in request of public records such as these.

The Del Mar union School district recently lost a court case over public records and, sadly, has to use taxpayer money to pay the $42,500 in legal fees of the plaintiff. Let's hope our own local agencies do not ignore the open government and…

Statistics - Proof, exaggeration or lies?

As we proceed through each day we are bombarded with statistics cited by television "reporters" (actually 'news readers'), politicians and anyone else pushing themselves into the temporary limelight. Statistics give the impression of solid knowledge, of indepth study, of, well, in words of single syllable, pure ca-ca.
