This week’s stories from Forward Kentucky

Good morning! This week’s update is going to be short, as I am on vacay in one of my favorite spots, Traverse City in Michigan. Just a beautiful part of the world, with the water and the beaches and the landscape, including the many vineyards. And of course, as a local history buff, I love all the museums and such.

Hope you have a great week. Thanks for being a member of Forward Kentucky!

Choosing to fail at open government: the Louisville mayor
In the most recent test of his stated commitment to open government, Louisville Mayor Greenberg is failing.
The public’s right to know is under attack.
