PostOpen Meetings

We have certainly come a long way since the very first Seekonk community web group was founded in 2005. One of the hottest topics for the years that followed was alledged backroom deals and the underuse of technology that had the potential to connect all citizens with government and the community.

In Friday's editorial, "Progress slow on Open Meeting Law", the Sun Chronicle commended Seekonk's BOS for taking a hard line approach by insisting the Board of Health permit open meetings to be televised. To quote "They recognize that the presumption should be that the public's business should be done in public. And they are willing to take action to enforce that view. And that's progress."

No one can be sure whether or not there are still backroom deals taking place. I suspect there are. But the BOS should be commended for working towards bringing us one step closer to twenty-first century communication technology. Thumbs up

Yep- and I am happy to say that I was able to watch a SC meeting online via streaming video, so now meetings are no longer available to just cable customers.
