Toledo Blade highlights problem with closed government in Ohio

Ohio's Sunshine Laws -- statutes calling for opening meetings and public records -- are not just under assault by courts and public officials, they have been shredded.

One example is the continued abuse for more than 24 years in Clearcreek Township, where the Trustees have been -- and continue to -- engage in secret "pre-meeting" meetings of the Trustees before every trustee meeting.  The Cincinnati Enquirer this week highlighted a similar practice by the Board of the University of Cincinnati.

The Toledo Blade highlights the problem here, and Senator Shannon Jones bill to rein in Court abuses of the Ohio Open Meetings law.
