I appreciate this article, Mr. Zachary. When governments operate behind closed doors, they send a message that suggests that the truth deserves to be hidden. We are a free people; we elect representatives, not rulers. Secret meetings a/k/a "executive sessions" breed distrust. Historically, governments have given their people ample reason to distrust them. It is difficult to trust elected officials in plain sight. When they operate secretly, they only further the disconnect between them and those they have sworn to serve.
