On The Record

Meredith worked with a small group of neighborsgo reporters on a yearlong investigation on open records compliance. The team surveyed websites and sent multiple open records requests to 113 cities and school districts in the North Texas area. The project culminated in several stories, as well as report cards for each government body included in the investigation. It was awarded second place in the 2015 Texas APME Awards’ Public Information category. Click here to explore the project.
