Executive Sessions by the Skiatook Board Of Trustees on March 27, April 4, April 24, 2012 were illegal and are subject to a Court Imposed Injunction and Restraining Order. All decisions made during these Executive Decisions are subject to a Court Injunction and Restraining Order.
According to Joey Senat, Ph.D., Associate Professor, OSU School of Media & Strategic Communications, FOI Oklahoma, the Skiatook Board Of Trustees are in violation of the Oklahoma Open Meetings Act ( Okla. Stat, tit.25. & 307 (B) (10) )
Attorney General Scott Pruitt Opinion ( 2011 OK AG 22 ), “ “ The public has a right to know what you are going to discuss in an executive session:
When the executive session is to discuss “ Economic Development “, the agenda must identify the specific item of business to be discussed.
The Skiatook Board Of Trustees are ignoring this AG Opinion and State Law by not giving proper notice on the Board Meeting Agenda. This means identifying what the trustees intend to discuss. “ Economic Development “ is not LEGAL NOTICE. It does not meet the requirements of “ Specificity “required by the AG Opinion.
Taxpayers and Skiatook Citizens are entitled to know what the Skiatook Board Of Trustees are discussing in “Secret “ by giving specific notice on The Board Agenda.
The Skiatook Board failed this Statutory Requirement and all decisions resulting from these illegal “ Executive Sessions “ are subject to Court Injunction and a Restraining Order.
