Kennneth J. Bunting – my thoughts

Thinking about a friend:

Sometimes you just know a person.  I never had the chance to know Ken Bunting as well as I hoped..  He knew facts and stories I wish I knew.  He shared a passion and knew how to make open government happen.  He was a special man.

Above all, he was a supporter of the right of each of us to have access to information by and about our government.  He knew the role of a free press as the way in which we learn and become engaged.

In recent times I have encouraged Ken to come to Minnesota where his ideas might take root.  He had a thing about the weather  .Little did he know our strength comes from the time we spend making the world a better place.

Ken was a major contributor to the efforts of many to think about our future.  He knew that open government requires the efforts of a public that lives outside the beltway but still has a voice.

The vision of Ken Bunting inspires us all.
