Georgia citizen journalist Nydia Tisdale is in the news again but this time, the story doesn’t involve her getting thrown out of a public meeting or arrested in a pumpkin patch.

Tisdale is being honored by Georgia’s First Amendment Foundation for her work in making public meetings available to the citizens of her community and for her dedication to keeping government open for everyone’s participation.

In a letter announcing the award, Shawn McIntosh, President of the Georgia First Amendment Foundation says:
“Each year, the board of directors of the Georgia First Amendment Foundation accepts nominations for the Open Government Hero Award. Not every year produces an honoree but this year there was no question that open government had a fierce and exemplary advocate deserving of recognition.”
