HAMBURG SCHOOL COMMUNITY,
THIS WAS SENT BY A CONCERNED CITIZEN WHO ASKED THAT I POST PROMPTLY.
Hamburg taxpayer writes,
"Board of Education members, President Joan Calkins and Member Tom Flynn were at a secret meeting tonight at the Hamburg Administration Building. Apparently, the superintendent called a meeting of his "ambassadors" to discuss the 2012-13 budget. The problem is that the district is in violation of the open meeting laws. Caught on video, and in still frame, are members of the Board of Education, the father of administrator Colleen Kaney, and private citizen Harold Johnson (who attempted to fill the seat vacated by Kelly Harper). They all are seen and recorded when exiting the meeting that was called tonight to discuss the people's business.
Why wasn't the public invited?
While reflecting on this question, one might ask the following;
1. How does one become an ambassador?
2. If BOE members are asked to served, do they not need approval from the other BOE members to comply with open meeting laws?
3. Because BOE members sit on the secret society called the "ambassadors," shouldn't the public be notified, and permitted to attend the meeting?
4. How are people notified of the ambassadors group? Nothing has been posted on the district webpage, nor in local papers.
Perhaps, this is a matter for New York State Supreme Court. Video and still photos will appear on Hamburg Ethics soon, and charges may be filed with the courts.
Mr. Achramovitch, please notify by posting on the district's website the names of the ambassadors, and when these meetings will take place."
