Assistant Senate Democrat Leader says MaineOpenGov.org is a “witchhunt”

Assistant Democrat Leader Lisa Marrache (D) – Waterville, responded directly today to several media stories about her proposed bill to hide names from public employees salary information.

Her opinon piece in the Kennebec Journal calls those who publish this public information “sleazy and voyeuristic’ and goes on to say at the same time that she is, “a big proponent of transparency in government…”

She can say what she wants, but as the Brunswick Times says,  “Marrache’s legislation would put this state back into the dark ages,
with respect to Maine’s Freedom of Access law… a misguided piece of legislation that deserves a quick death at the
committee level, with a unanimous ‘ought not to pass’ recommendation
stamped across the document.”

Maybe the good Senator is familiar with the phrase, “actions speak louder than words”
