During a recent “Meet the Candidates” night in Paris, Illinois, Candidates for the 102nd State Representative District were asked if they would support or oppose a fee to access public records thru the Freedom Of Information Act.

Brad Halbrook, Jim Acklin, and Randy Peterson were present.

Brad Halbrook stated he would oppose any fee for public records because the public has already paid for those records and there needs to be more accountability.

Both Acklin and Peterson stated they would not oppose such a fee, meaning they do in fact support charging the public for records they already own by law and have already paid for.

History has shown us that a sure sign of hiding things from the public is making them pay for information that should be provided without charge.
