Second TNT Editorial on Shoreline Open Meetings Case

The Tacoma News-Tribune writes a second editorial on this case.

"Sad to say, holding round-robin meetings without a quorum in order to circumvent the open meetings law is not an unusual tactic in local government. The Shoreline Four knew perfectly well what they did was devious and unethical. If they had simply accepted fines, Shoreline taxpayers would have been far better served."

NOTE: Allied Law Group represented the citizens in this case.
