GONZALEZ WANTS GUV, LEGIS TO FOLLOW PUBLIC RECORDS LAWS

Democrat Jay Gonzalez vowed Monday to voluntarily comply with public records laws if elected governor next year, and said he would file legislation to cover the governor's office and the Legislature under the law, ending a practice that has carried through the administrations of Democrats and Republicans.

Following up on national “Sunshine Week” celebrating transparency in government, Gonzalez lamented that Massachusetts was in limited company in exempting its governors from public records laws. Michigan, he said, is the only other state with such an exemption, and is considering legislation to change that.
