Dear Mr. Paff:
Your January 28, 2014 e-mail to the Spotswood Board of Education has been referred to me for a response. I have reviewed your concerns with my client, and have been authorized to advise you as follows. The Board is committed to honoring its obligations under the Open Public Meetings Law, and will take steps to assure that a resolution is adopted prior to each closed session, stating specific subject matters to be discussed consistent with existing case law on the matter. The Board will also endeavor to provide somewhat more detail in its private session minutes -- again, consistent with prevailing case law.
Thank you for your bringing your concerns to our attention.
Very truly yours,
David B. Rubin
