Paul Davis, publisher of newspapers in Tuskegee, Auburn and Tallassee and a longtime mental-health supporter, recently resigned from the Alabama Department of Mental Health's board of trustees.
The reason: He learned that the board's meetings were not open to the public.
Good for Davis. Sometimes it takes radical action to get Montgomery's attention.
Nevertheless, we hope Davis — and the like-minded — will use this spark to keep burning the flame for open government.
Closed-door government doesn't work.
