At the Ward 10 Meeting tonight (at which I rambled and was not very eloquent) I asked all the candidates if they are elected would they participate in Flaherty's closed door meetings of 6 at a time councilors rotating in and out (which the City Council pleaded guilty to 15 years ago) which violate the open meeting law, or would they stand with Felix Arroyo, Maura Hennigan, Charles Yancey and Chuck Turner in boycotting those meetings and calling for open transparent government.
These are the responses:
Flaherty has said he abides by the Open Meeting Law (why don't the others agree?)
Murphy (who has attended these meetings)
Ed Flynn "I will not participate in an unlawful meeting"
John Connolly -also says he won't do anything unlawful
Patricia White-says she doesn't want to get involved in my lawsuit, but wouldn't do anything
(Hey you said at the Ward 11 Meeting that you were the heir apparent to the long line of progressive women on the council. None of the progressive's participate in the meetings)
Sam Yoon has refused to answer the question.
