Testimony from state’s agency that oversees the public records law shows how little they care about the public’s access to records
They repeated these falsehoods to Kane-McGunigle, us, the Boston Globe, and to Galvin’s office.
To be fair, it might be awkward for Healey to pursue violations given that her own office has trouble following the public records law.
There are a few possible solutions. One would be giving Galvin’s office more power to enforce the law. Another would be to streamline the process by eliminating Galvin’s role entirely and having the AG’s office handle the process from start to finish.
All things considered, the supervisor of records needs to be removed regardless of whether the current push for an update to the public records law passes.
