If legislation introduced by Supervisor Mirkarimi is approved on April 15 as expected, San Francisco will become the first city in the country to stream live audio and video coverage of city government meetings. This will be an enhancement of the sunshine ordinance requirements and will allow citizens to find out what is going on in city government and how issues are being handled. An archive will be created to hold the records for two years and make them accessible. The process will not be without cost, but anything that makes our government more open and accountable is something to cheer. Once again San Franciscans can be proud of being leaders.
