In today’s Cheers and Jeers Editorial:
Jeers to the council and Stockton for the decision this week not to release to the public 80 sets of closed-session minutes dating back to 1995. The council thinks it’s complying with the state’s Open Meetings Act, despite acknowledging it hadn’t reviewed such minutes as required by law. Yes, it would take a lot of time to review all those minutes, but citizens, and the media, have a right to the information. It’s as simple as that.
