Michael Reitz, president of the Michigan Coalition for Open Government, released the following statement today on the death of journalist and college journalism dean Jane Briggs-Bunting, who was one of MiCOG’s founders.
“Jane was a fierce advocate for accountable and open government and inspired many with her life’s work. We at MiCOG are grateful for her vision in founding an organization that could champion government transparency. Readers around the state knew her from her op-eds and frequent comments defending open government. She was a dear friend, and we will miss her.”
