City officials need to meet in public

From: Glenn Petri

Columbus

Received: Sept. 27

Why would select county commissioners, county councilmen and city councilmen have an early-morning meeting at a private citizen’s home?

This occurred Monday, Sept. 24.

Amazingly, all those in attendance have opposed the mayor in recent decisions. Some in this select group have opposed her since day one. If this meeting was anything different, why was it done behind closed doors and not open to the public? Why weren’t ALL elected county commissioners, county councilmen and city councilmen offered a chance to attend?

This meeting has none of the transparency wanted by the voters of Columbus.

If this is what you want, so be it.

But if you want openness in government, now is the time to speak up.

Your city councilman’s email address is on the city’s website.

City Council meetings are at 6 p.m. the first and third Tuesday of every month.

Now is the time to make your voice heard.

Don't settle for a preview.
