CT Journalism Hall of Fame: Forrest Palmer

Forrest Palmer is the retired publisher of the Danbury News-Times.

He has served on the Board of the Connecticut Foundation for Open Government for many years.  He was President of CFOG when they helped fund a serious study of the viability of FOI law in Connecticut.  That study made national news and is still used as a benchmark of how to conduct studies of Freedom of Information compliance in the United States.

He has been a long and tireless fighter for keeping public records open to the public in Connecticut.
