Happy Holidays Sunlighters!
Though the weather outside is frightful, this holiday season we have more reason to spread cheer after all you've DONE to help the Sunlight Foundation spread transparency across the country.
We want to take just one moment to say "thank you."Over the past year, you've been invaluable help in our task to make government more open: you've helped us dig through piles of data and push for real transparency in Congress. You've blogged, commented, tweeted, edited wikis, and spread the word of "sunlight" -- all in the name of greater transparency.
To thank you for everything over the past year, the Sunlight Labs team put together this Holiday card:http://sunlightfoundation.com/holiday2008/
As an added HOLIDAY bonus, Sunlight recently launched a new version of our Congress word-of-the-day site, Capitol Words. Take a look at it over the holidays. The new Capitol Words (http://www.capitolwords.org) provides extensive new features including pages for individual lawmakers and whole state-wide delegations and the words they use the most.
We are excited about 2009. The New Year will bring a lot of new opportunities for you to join with us to work for even more transparency. We have a lot planned and hope that you will join us, as we will join you, in pushing for an open, honest, and connected government.
Happy Holidays from the ENTIRE Sunlight Foundation team!
