The Florida Court Clerks & Comptrollers Association has announced it will celebrate “Sunshine Week,” a nationwide initiative dedicated to governmental openness and access, as well as educating citizens on the importance of the business of government.
“Transparency in government is at the core of every Clerk’s office throughout the state,” said Joseph E. Smith, FCCC president and clerk of the Circuit Court of St. Lucie County in a statement Thursday morning. “Florida’s Court Clerks and Comptrollers are committed to ensuring dependability, clarity and openness in government. We look forward to celebrating a decade of open-government awareness and empowering communities to play an active role in our government.”
“Sunshine Week gives FCCC a chance to highlight these resources and new initiatives, so we can enlighten the public on their right to know,” concluded Smith.
Sunshine Week will run from Monday, March 15, until Saturday, March 21.
