The Delaware Coalition for Open Government and the Delaware Press Association will host “Ensuring Transparency and Accountability: Why Delaware Needs an Inspector General Now!” from 7-8:30 p.m. Monday.

The virtual panel discussion will be moderated by the coalition’s president, John Kowalko III, and focus on the need to establish an independent, nonpartisan Delaware Office of the Inspector General. A Q&A will follow.

Panel members will be:

  • Stephen B. Street Jr., Louisiana’s inspector general since 2008.
  • Sen. Laura Sturgeon, D-Woodbrook.
  • Anitra Johnson, a reporter covering underserved communities.
  • Sarah Bucic, co-chair of Lead-Free Delaware.

They will address the need for an impartial independent inspector general, who would have the responsibility of oversight and investigation to strengthen government integrity and public trust. Additionally, a bill establishing such an office will be discussed.
