A Nice FOI-Driven Idea: The Mayor’s Calendar

Here is a great FOI idea — and one that found a mayor doing pretty much what he is SUPPOSED to be doing!

Mayor Dave Bing took office pledging substance over style, saying he prefers “hard work behind the scenes” and that he won’t “showboat.”

His 2010 official calendar shows that, halfway through his term, Bing is sticking to the approach. The Detroit News used the Freedom of Information Act to obtain the schedule — the most detailed portrait yet of Bing’s governing style.
