Why close public meetings?

  • Follow Letters

In reference to Susan McCord’s March 2 article “Attorney disputes Walmart land deal”: Why would the Augusta Commission ever need a closed (secret) meeting?

Since these people serve the people, nothing they do should ever be hidden from the people they were elected to represent/serve. I am sure there are some personnel matters that might require closed discussion. However, once resolved, a full disclosure should be made.

Mr. Sterling, Bureaucratic

Mr. Sterling,

Bureaucratic Management(BM) is much more difficult than astrophysics or computational chemistry. We sheeple must attempt to understand this. Our shepherds are protecting us from matters much more profound than any our slick cortexts could fathom.

And yet we keep reelecting

And yet we keep reelecting these gutless wonders who illegally meet behind closed doors to discuss how they spend OUR money and dispose of OUR property. In any real city there would be some kind of taxpayer watchdog group that would be dragging the mayor and the commission to court every time they crossed the line......which would be about every other week. Maybe they are not corrupt.....but if it walks like a duck and quacks like a duck........it's usually a duck. If nothing else they are so arrogant that they think the citizens are too stupid to be allowed to know anything about the issues before the decision is made. Our commission's motto is "Take the Sunshine Laws and stick them where the sun don't shine".
