In Loving Memory of Open The Books Honorary Chairman Dr. Tom Coburn 38_Coburn





Now he belongs to the ages... our friend, mentor, and Honorary Chairman Sen. Tom Coburn passed away. Dr. Coburn was a true giant and one of the great leaders in our nation's history.


“I believe all life has value, from conception to natural death.”





“An easily accessible and transparent database of contract information will bring sunshine into the confusing and sometimes shadowy practice of government contracting.”



“I believe that we should spend taxpayer dollars where they are most needed.”



“We need real leadership, Democrat, Republican and independent to stand up and say, ‘We have to live within our means.’”


“In the state of Washington alone, there are 17,590 homeless people and we're going to take money... to build a sculpture park? I think not... I think that's not the right priority.”



Rest in Peace, Dr. Tom Coburn
