LETTER: The importance of Nevada’s public records laws

I appreciate the Review Journal’s recent editorial “Forced to hire a lawyer to make democracy work for you” on public records law. I wholeheartedly agree that the system is broken in Nevada. I have experienced a state agency stonewalling the release of requested records, which resulted in a lack of accountability. For more than a year, the records have not been released. There has been no transparency by this agency, which leads me to question: What are they covering up and where is their integrity? This practice must be stopped.
