Sunshine Week

Idaho Press Club Sunshine Week

Sunshine Week is a national initiative to open a dialogue about the importance of open government and freedom of information. It’s our annual confab about open government in all its forms.

The Southwest Chapter of Idaho Press Club is sponsoring two events:

Debate on Debates
Tuesday, March 18
6:00-8:00 p.m.
Beside Bardenay, 612 Grove Street, Boise

Join journalists, analysts and political professionals as we discuss the validity and usefulness of public debates. Are they still useful? Should they be mandatory for candidates? Is the public paying attention?

Appetizers and a no-host bar
$10.00 members, $12.00 non-members and $7.00 students
Panelists: Marcia Franklin, Jim Weatherby, Jeff Malmen, Marty Peterson
Moderator: Marc Johnson
RSVP or (208) 389-2879

Deciphering Finance Reports
Thursday, March 20
12:00-1:30 p.m. Luncheon
The Boiler Room at Bardenay, 612 Grove Street, Boise

We’ll take a tour through the arcane but essential (and sometimes newsworthy) world of campaign finance reports with three veterans as our guides.

Panelists: John Miller, Dan Popkey, Betsy Russell
Moderator: Shea Andersen

$10.00 members, $12.00 non-members and $7.00 students
RSVP or (208) 389-2879
