To the Editor:

Deb Harper is a hero to me.

If a government entity insists on secrets then they should budget for Freedom of Information requests. Responding to those requests is a legitimate function of government. As Deb herself is quoted in your article (see "How much is enough — or too much — in keeping government open?" in the April 21 edition), the solution is for government entities to know the laws and follow them.

Thank you, Deb and Paul Harper, for your service to Somervell County. Thank you, Editor Jones, for bringing it to the public’s attention that there are people in the county who prefer secrecy.
