Here is a summary of the meeting of the Commack Community Association held on Thursday, March 14 at the Commack Public Library on Hauppauge rd. Our guest was Robert Freeman, attorney, and director of the NY Committee on Open government (COOG) for 40 years . This is a NY state agency for the benefit of NY residents to help keep government accountable to the people. Mr. Freeman has helped countries around the world to create " Foil" systems for those citizens who wish to know what their government is doing.
A Foil refers to a freedom of information request. A Foil request can be made by any US/NY citizen. Often there is a small charge for copying documents and mailing them to the recipient.
