In Portsmouth, OH, Sunshine training routine among boards, city lacking

With the revelation that most members of Portsmouth City Council have not taken Sunshine Laws training to understand the need for all things to be done in open sessions so the public can know what is going on, comes word that most local boards are operated by people who have had the training.
“Just from working at the (Franklin County) Prosecutor’s Office previously, I was aware of the requirements,” Southern Ohio Port Authority Board Director Jason Kester said. “And then from going to the Economic Development Basic Course last year, it came up that it was very important to make sure your board understands that, especially for the Port Authority because we are a quasi-governmental – quasi-private interaction of two worlds, it was highly recommended that I have everybody attend that; go through some training; go through some port authority specific training; go through just some general Ohio Ethics Sunshine Law training.” Tagged , , ,
