Being in the media, I spend a lot of my time tracking down public records from government agencies, online and in person. At some point, nearly everyone will have to do the same, for anything from court records to property tax info.
This , I'm curious what you think about your local government's openness to public access? Have you tried to get public records from the City of Santee or County of San Diego and run into any trouble getting those records?
In my experience, I haven't had any trouble getting records I need from the City of Santee. City Clerk Patsy Bell is always willing to help find what I need, and often times the records can be found online.
