Governments Should Encourage a Free Press on World Press Freedom Day ... and every day
Today is World Press Freedom Day, a day devoted to encouraging governments to respect their commitment to a free press.
Drew is a leading global voice for press freedom. As a journalist, he made international news for exposing the United Nations — the host of World Press Freedom Day — for banning the media from its own taxpayer-funded events. He has been detained in Russia and forcibly removed from a public meeting in India for standing up for freedom of the press.
He will bring that same commitment to press freedom and government transparency to the Clark County Commission.
The Clark County government is notoriously slow and unhelpful when it comes to responding to public records requests from the media and the public. Drew will work to make Clark County more accountable and more transparent, just as he has worked to do throughout the world.
