Transparency is always best
Some of the most gripping news stories I've read are those that shine a spotlight on secret meetings or back door deals.
Unfortunately, (or fortunately) I haven't had much opportunity to write these types of pieces in my career. I am not naive enough to believe it hasn't happened locally. I also know we've had leaders who pushed to keep things public.
Those are the people I respect most. I've always said government's problems often can be traced to a lack of transparency.
So no matter how you feel about the current hospital situation, you should know that the key players did not hesitate when I asked for input.
This city-owned hospital is a source of pride for many residents. Upon moving here in 1988, I learned that people will do whatever it takes to help the hospital succeed. But support is a two-way street. We all deserve to be kept in the loop.
