That’s the subject of a great-sounding public forum featuring elected officials and others that the Washington Coalition for Open Government is holding Monday evening in Tacoma.
Jerry Handfield, the state archivist and WCOG president, will make a presentation he’s calling “Mythbusters, Identity Theft and Online Public Records.”
A panel discussion will involve State Auditor Brian Sonntag, state representative turned Microsoft employee Toby Nixon, Pierce County Deputy Prosecutor Bertha Fitzer, Davis Wright Tremaine partner Michele Earl-Hubbard and Tacoma News Tribune investigative reporter Sean Robinson.
The event is co-sponsored by the regional chapter of the Society of Professional Journalists and hosted by the TNT. It’s from 7-9 p.m. in the auditorium at the paper’s building at 1950 S. State St.
If the speeches get boring, check out the enormous Chihuly installation in the lobby.
