School board continues to hide

Dear Editor,
The Ridgway School Board continues to play ostrich. At its March 27 meeting, Mr. Brian Donivan made an excellent, cogent, well documented presentation pointing out, with legal citations, how the board's actions are contrary to statute and established case law. He pointed out that the board's excessive use of executive sessions not only deprives the public of information on what the board is doing and why, but is contrary to law. He reminded the board that court decisions prohibit retroactive authorization of executive sessions (which this board has done) and that the records of illegally held executive sessions are in the public domain.
