BOSTON — A fight is being waged on Beacon Hill over a newspaper’s request to keep tabs on the comings and goings of lawmakers — and the controversy has provoked additional press criticism of Gov. Deval Patrick.
After press time, the governor's office submitted the following statement: "The governor and his entire administration are extremely accessible to the public and the press on a regular basis. From daily public events and press briefings to consistent compliance with public meeting and records laws to putting the state budget and finances online, we are by far the most transparent administration in recent memory."
Patrick appears tonight at 7 p.m. on Greater Boston.
