Sunshine Week 2021
The Hillsborough County Clerk of Court & Comptroller celebrates the 16th Annual Sunshine Week – March 14 thru 20, 2021. The Clerk plays a vital role in providing access to important documents, including court and official records. As keeper of the county’s financial records, I am committed to financial transparency.
Florida has an extensive history of protecting citizens' rights to having access to public information. Beginning in 1909 with the Public Records Law and evolving to the Sunshine Law, Florida has long supported providing access and the ability to participate in government. Florida's sunshine laws rank among the strongest in the country, demonstrating the state's commitment to protecting residents' rights to remain informed and engaged.
As Clerk, I am proud of my responsibility and ability to provide the citizens of Hillsborough County with access to records and the resources you need to be active members of our community. Maintaining transparency and equal access to public information is one of my most important responsibilities and one which I take very seriously.
While Sunshine Week is only once a year, the Clerk’s Office upholds government transparency with accurate recordkeeping and efficient reporting every day. As your elected Clerk of Court and Comptroller, I am committed to serving the public and defending your right to access public information. As your Clerk of Court and Comptroller, it is my personal mission to help our community Get to YES!
