The Connecticut Council on Freedom of Information’s annual luncheon is a great celebration of Connecticut’s Freedom of Information Act and people who’ve worked to preserve the public’s right to know.
The honorees include The Day columnist Dave Collins; state Rep. Cristin McCarthy-Vahey; Yale’s Media Freedom and Information Access Clinic; and Connecticut Freedom of Information Commission Managing Director Mary Schwind and Management Analyst Cindy Cannata. We will also be honoring David Fink as a champion of open government for his work with the Connecticut Foundation for Open Government.
This year’s luncheon will be at noon on Oct. 18 at the Pond House, Elizabeth Park in Hartford. Tickets are $50 per person. Tickets are sold at the door, but we ask that you RSVP ahead of time so we can get a head count. You can respond to Mike Savino at 860-324-5768 or to Treasurer Jacqueline Smith at firstname.lastname@example.org or 203-540-7305.
