Dec. 27th: KSLA News 12 Jindal Transparency Editorial

Posted: Updated:

Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal may have promised transparency in state government, but apparently top officials in his administration didn't get the message.

The Associated Press reports several officials in the Jindal administration used private email accounts to discuss strategies regarding the massive health care cuts to the LSU System. Using a private email account as opposed to a state-government email address flies in the face of transparency. The National Freedom of Information Coalition says people sometimes use private accounts to hide things.

Governor, you need to find out if some of your top advisors were intentionally trying to hide matters from the public .

Governor Jindal needs to, make good on his promise of transparency. We believe an open government is always in the best interest of its people.

I'm James Smith.
