You can’t make this stuff up: The East Providence School Committee held a nonpublic discussion to discuss how the public can comment during public session, something you would think the public should have some comment on. When the state ACLU asked why it was nonpublic, the committee responded that the meeting was to address a ‘public comment lawsuit.’ But when the ACLU filed an open records request to get copies of the documents from this public comment lawsuit, they were told there were none. So now, ironically, the ACLU now has filed a real lawsuit over the nonexistent public comment lawsuit, claiming that the committee held a nonpublic meeting for improper reasons. Not surprisingly, the committee chairman chose not to make any public comments in The Pawtucket Times report.
