Entrepreneurial Spirit

Last week I was a judge for the Diamond Challenge for High School Entrepreneurs at University of Delaware. I was amazed at the creativity and ingenuity these young students put into their projects. Thanks for allowing me to be part of this, and congratulations to everyone!

Mill Creek Fire Co. Open House

FOIA Bill Introduced

I am proud to sponsor House Bill 320, which would require public bodies that meet four or fewer times per year to post draft meeting minutes online within 10 working days of the end of the meeting.

Currently, a group that only holds annual meetings is not required to post meeting minutes until they have been approved, which would happen a full year later. Under the bill the public body chair or director would approve the draft minutes to be posted.

The idea that in 2014 meeting minutes for a public body might not be available for three, six or even 12 months does not make much sense to me. The public has a right to know about these meetings, and they shouldn’t have to wait an unacceptable amount of time.
