KSFR and Santa Fe County's gatekeeper

The previous post described the public-policy of Santa Fe County. It seems there are pesky reporters looking for "dirt." To protect administrators and staff, the public information officer would stand his post at the gate.

No need to look very far for interesting material, however. It results from their own doings, it's public, and it abounds.

KSFR's Marion Cox and Dave Obler are excellent researchers. The story of how they "discovered" a half-baked county procedure wasn't hard to find. It just took a little work.

There will be more to come about Santa Fe County and how it conducts its taxpayer-paid business in the "public interest."

Yet another story on how the county conducts it business in the "public's interest" is coming. Stay tuned.
