Adviser to keep government transparent




A former Greenwood attorney and Franklin College graduate will review cases and make decisions about whether governments have violated public access laws.

Luke Britt will take over as the state public access counselor on Monday. When governments decide to withhold documents or close meetings to the public, Britt can be asked to review the case and determine whether officials were following the law. He can also help local government officials learn the laws of what is considered public information.

The position focuses on keeping government transparent, Britt said.
