An update that I failed to mention in my Part 2 post.

After the District Level Materials Challenge, I emailed our Brevard School Board representative, Mrs. Amy Kneessy and explained how Penny and I both were denied being able to record the meeting. I told her how Ms Gina Clark and Ms. VanMeter both said that we were required first to notify the committee of our intentions. They then went on to say that the committee felt “uncomfortable” in being recorded. I asked Mrs. Kneessy if indeed, we were not allowed to record at public meetings?

She contacted the legal representative for the school board and then  informed us the next day that Ms. VanMeter and Ms Gina Clark were both wrong in denying myself and Penny the right to record the meeting. We should of been allowed to record the meeting without interference. In fact, due to this blatant “oversight”, a county wide memo went out the next day, alerting all in the Brevard County School System that public meetings may be recorded.

  1. The BPS representatives knew the law regarding public hearings. Most of them have been in the school system more than 20 years. The statues governing public hearings are clear and have been in effect for as long as they have been employed. Their actions are deplorable. They know better and should be reprimanded and their personnel files so note the reprimand. The question is why did they break the Sunshine Laws? You can file a complaint to the Ethics Committee if you chose.


  2. Dang it Ham….you poked a stick into the cockroach nest and stirred ’em all up.
