I recently moved to Knoxville from Florida, and I have found nothing to cause me regret in making this move. However, I must state that Florida operates all of its government and public business in the sunshine, and it is all open for any person who requests information. There is a nominal fee for extensive records requests.
I might add that I am a former public official who dealt with public records requests and do have some knowledge in this area. If I were a citizen living in Loudon County, I would be circulating a petition for the recall of Mayor Doyle Arp.
