Secretary of State Jim Condos Brings “Got Transparency!” to St. Johnsbury

Secretary of State Jim Condos, at the request of a group of concerned citizens from St. Johnsbury, will be making a presentation on Transparency in Government at the St. Johnsbury School on Tuesday, August 14th, 2012. Similar to his 12-stop “Transparency Tour” last fall in towns all across the state, Secretary Condos will be discussing both the Public Records and the Open Meeting Laws.

“I am happy that the citizens of Vermont feel comfortable reaching out to me when they have questions regarding our Open Meeting laws. Transparency in Government is an issue that is important to Vermonters across the state,” stated Sec’y Condos.

The presentation will take place in the St. Johnsbury School auditorium, at 7 pm, with members of the selectboard, school board, planning commission, DRB, and the public invited to attend.

The Secretary of State’s office receives many inquiries from municipal officials and from the general public, particularly about the Open Meetings law. We disseminate this important information in many different formats, including in person meetings, email responses, and postings on our website.

The public is strongly encouraged to attend this presentation in St. Johnsbury and bring their questions with them. All neighboring communities are invited as well.
