Barely Legal


I was thinking about this last night as I was posting on the “Night is Day” thing:

All eight initiatives were the result of a series of private meetings in the past month between the four new members and the new board chairman, Ron Margiotta. Those meetings also included members of private groups that Margiotta declined to identify. Members of the new majority defended their private meetings, saying they didn’t violate state mandates because they had yet to be sworn in.

Look, I get it.  The old Board did things, and in ways, that some people didn’t like.  Because of that, the election process removed them from their seats and gave new people with new voices the ability to shape things.  That’s ho it’s supposed to work.  I’m very happy that it did work.

But these shenanigans are really really over the top:

Malone said they met before Tuesday because heading into the meeting unprepared would have sent their supporters a bad message.

“It’s not illegal,” Malone said. “We needed to be prepared. I had nightmares about walking into the meeting not being prepared.”

It’ll be fun to continue to watch this.  Fun to see if anything really changes.
