Here’s The Scoop

BCbythesea is still concerned with the advice given by the new Town Attorney at the Sunshine Law Workshop… a few weeks ago…

Mr. Abbott said that a Commissioner or Board member could¬† have one way communication…

speak …email or phone another member …..if they first prefaced it by….”do not respond”….

as long as the recipient does not respond ….it is not sunshine…

I have asked another attorney…

The response was…he thinks this is bad advice…

I would prevail upon the Commission and Town Hall to get a ruling on this from the Sunshine Law Ethics expert in Tallahassee…before any sitting members violate a Sunshine law if this is not correct information…

better to be safe….¬† in my humble opinion….
