Why are we surprised? It seems they pretty much do whatever they want.

I believe the members of the BOE have their own agenda and totally disregard their stakeholders' concerns. Closed door meetings often suggest that there are secrets to be kept.

So as we celebrate our Day of Independence, the Wood County School Board flips off our democracy by meeting in secret...sounds like something you would find in Russia, China, or in Iran. I hope someone files charges against this board. When school boards or other governmental bodies meet in secret, it only means they are hiding something...something they are ashamed of...something they do not want the voter or taxpayer to know. These public officials need to be brought to justice during the next election. Meeting in the dark like Vampires is not the way to do the public business. Only in the bright sunshine of the Red, White and Blue can the right decisions be made...decisions that are truly in the publics interests.

Interesting editorial. So then what if they violate the Open Meeting Law? Is there some sort of punishment for violating the law? Apparently not.
