Sunshine Week in Spanish: A Great Idea!

Those of you with Spanish-language audiences take heed: Eight journalists including Gilbert Bailon, editor and publisher of The Dallas Times Herald's Spanish-language daily Al Día and David Sedeño, publisher of the Fort Worth (Texas) Star-Telegram's Diario La Estrella have formed the Sunshine Week 2007 Spanish Language Working Group to promote the importance of open government in the Hispanic community.

The group will promote Sunshine Week by working with the national, regional and state coordinators to develop Spanish-language materials for participating newspapers and news organization, through media interviews and public forums, and by leading their own organizations' Sunshine Week activities.
