Pennsylvania’s commissioners defend unadvertised meetings

From The Time-Tribune

Commissioners Jim Wansacz and Corey O'Brien have held more than a dozen private meetings with elected municipal and school board officials from throughout Lackawanna County over the past three months in possible violation of Pennsylvania's Sunshine Act.

The majority Democratic commissioners describe the unadvertised, invitation-only meetings as little more than informal chat sessions, a chance to swap ideas and learn what other public officials have on their minds.
