UC San Diego Conference on Ethics, Transparency and Civility - Part Two: Transparency

11/11/2014; 86 minutes

If sunlight is the best of disinfectants, what aspects of American public life need more disinfectant? Is there enough transparency in our politics at the national, state and local levels? Can there be such a thing as too much transparency? UC San Diego's Fonna Forman leads a fascinating discussion with elected officials and political activists on the benefits and potential drawbacks of transparency in civic institutions. The panelists include California State Senator Darrell Steinberg (D); Assembly Members Brian Jones (R) and Brian Maienschein (R); legislative staffer Don Wilcox; Sam Schuchat, executive officer for the California Coastal Conservancy and Kyle Heiskala, of "By the People" at UC San Diego. Recorded on 10/16/2014. (#28904)
