§ 100. Legislative declaration. It is essential to the maintenance of
a democratic society that the public business be performed in an open
and public manner and that the citizens of this state be fully aware of
and able to observe the performance of public officials and attend and
listen to the deliberations and decisions that go into the making of
public policy. The people must be able to remain informed if they are to
retain control over those who are their public servants. It is the only
climate under which the commonweal will prosper and enable the
governmental process to operate for the benefit of those who created it.
