City Attorney's Opinion

Our new city attorney, James Santoro, issued an opinion to the City Commission with regard to open meeting laws and SME.

According to this document, SME meetings should be open to the public. Of course, Tim Gregori thinks otherwise; unfortunately, the Tribune thought it more important that his picture and quote grace the front page of the Montana Section of Tuesday's (4/20) paper.

The Tribune should think it more important that we finally have a city attorney who is more concerned about the rights of the city and its citizens than with SME.

Many thanks to Mr. Santoro for defending those rights.

DITTO on courage, let's hope it 'infects' rest of city staff.
