Finney Levels Another Complaint

Police officers in Coeur d'Alene have completed an investigation into a citizen's complaint that three school board members may have violated the state's open meeting law. The complaint, lodged March 27 by Mary Jo Finney, was emailed to Kootenai County Prosecutor Barry McHugh. Finney claims that during a trip to Boise, school trustees Tom Hearn, Christa Hazel and Dave Eubanks -- three members of Coeur d'Alene's five-member school board -- broke the state law that prohibits the formation of public policy in secret. "There was an article in The Press with a picture showing them meeting together as a quorum in Boise," Finney wrote, in her email to McHugh. "Paragraph 9 of the open meeting manual gives me reason to believe a violation has occurred. I believe this discussion took place in this quorum in Boise about the GLBT 'add the words'"/Maureen Dolan, Coeur d'Alene Press. More here.
