Open Government Advocacy Project:
Piscataway school board\'s \"sunshine\" compliance
 

Issue Detail:

 
On January 20, 2012, I wrote to President Maas and the other members of the Piscataway Board of Education concerning the Board\'s compliance with the Open Public Meetings Act (i.e. the \"sunshine\" law). Particularly, I am concerned that the Board a) doesn\'t tell the public enough information about the topics that is discusses behind closed doors (i.e. closed or executive sessions), b) doesn\'t keep reasonably comprehensible minutes of its executive sessions and c) may be discussing topics in executive session that ought to be discussed with the public in attendance. My letter to the Board is on-line here. WHO AM I AND WHY AM I DOING THIS? I chair the New Jersey Libertarian Party\'s Open Government Advocacy Project. We take to heart James Madison\'s quote: \"A popular government without popular information or the means of acquiring it, is but a prologue to a farce, or a tragedy, or perhaps both.\" As part of our work, we monitor local governmental bodies to check on how well they inform the public about the public business they discuss behind closed doors.
