Open Data is critical to any strong government. The data belongs to the people. It needs to be open the from top level data all the way down into reports- not just for the people who already know what's going on, but also for entrepreneurs to create opportunities and offer information and knowledge to the public. We have a standing executive order for all data to be open.

— Mayor Greg Fisher, City of Louisville, KY
