New Charter for Lafayette, Oregon is coming...

Lafayette citizen files petition to hold city and council accountable with new city charter. This
may be the first charter in Oregon that has a prosecution clause.
Charter Volunteers Needed
After years of cities being bound by a
charter created to keep citizens from the
process, a new draft charter is being
designed to provide accountability and
return responsibility back to the elected.

Citizen Based Media and Accountability

This mission is to have a collaborative resource for citizen
advocates, whether by need or desire, to get information from and
to each other to promote sunlight into local government business.

Want an easy way to be part of
the change?

We are looking for folks who are willing
to send documents for uploading.
The Citizen's Agenda

Cities and Counties call us the naysayers.
What are citizens really interested in
getting from the process?

Your Rights...Use Them or Lose Them

If you do not constantly use your rights to remind those that would
bind you, you will lose them little by little.
Why are documents kept from us?

It has been said that those with the information have the control. No
where is that more apparent than in government.
Voltaire on Freedom
"...So long as the people do not care to exercise their freedom, those who wish to tyrannize will
do so; for tyrants are active and ardent, and will devote themselves in the name of any number
of gods, religious and otherwise, to put shackles upon sleeping men." Voltaire, François Marie
Arouet (1694-1778), Philosophical Dictionary, 1764
SEI forms not online until 2016
SEI forms have been promised to be online for years. The expected date has been pushed out
again.
Public Documents finally get a hearing...

Oregon House Rules Committee agrees to give Rep. Julie Parrish's HB3505 a hearing. This bill
would define costs for public records, something cities have been allowed to regulate, without
regulation, up to now. Its not a perfect bill, but it is better and wakes the conversation up.
