MN Senator Warren Limmer, Personal Privacy and Government Transparency

See also

In keeping with the current sentiments of raising the level of public discourse, lets proceed byrecognizing a politician when we catch them doing something right.

This week this author had the opportunity to meet with Minnesota State Senator Warren Limmer of Maple Grove Minnesota.

During the course of our meeting, Senator Limmer made approximately the following statement which strikes me as deserving praise and recognition"

"As far as I am concerned, when it comes to matters of transparency and privacy, I think the Government should be as open as possible with the exception of information that must be private such as matters of national security. However, when it comes to personal privacy, I believed that each individuals private information should be "walled off" from the government and corporations ito the extent the individual desires, except as is absolutely essentially for the Government to know." (my best recollection from memory and notes)

This reporter and private citizen give great kudos to Senator Limmer for taking this position on Government Transparency and Personal Privacy.

Senator Limmer resides in Maple Grove, Minnesota. Senator Limmer has been a Senator since 1995 and Currently represents Senate District 32. From 1989 to 1995 he was a State Representative.

Those were my thoughts.
