CCFOI Meeting Minutes – November 19, 2014

Connecticut Council on Freedom of Information
Minutes, Nov. 19, 2014

The meeting was at Wood-N-Tap, 99 Sisson Ave., Hartford.
 
The minutes of the Oct. 15, 2014, meeting were accepted, with one change. The FOI pledge was not distributed to congressional candidates.
 
Present: Jim Smith, Mary Connolly, Mike Savino, Mitch Pearlman, Paula Pearlman, Ron Robillard, Dick Ahles, Michele Jacklin, Steve Kalb, Dan Klau, Chris VanDeHoef.
 
Treasurer’s report: Smith said there is a balance of $11,000. Dues letters have been mailed.
 
FOI pledge: CCFOI asked candidates for the legislature and constitutional offices to sign a pledge in support of the FOI Act. The response was disappointing. One senator, Joan Hartley of Waterbury, signed it. Governor Malloy’s office told VanDeHoef that he signed it, but a signed copy has not been provided. In the House, just under 40 candidates signed it. Most media organizations did not include the pledge in their election coverage.
 
There was discussion of what to do next with the pledge. Several nonprofit groups, including ACLU of Connecticut and Connecticut Voices for Children, came to CCFOI in September to suggest including an FOI pledge in the election campaign. CCFOI agreed, but that left just a month before Election Day. VanDeHoef said expecting candidates to check their mail in the last few weeks of a campaign is unrealistic.
 
VanDeHoef  suggested asking the ACLU and Voices to mention the FOI pledge as they speak to legislators about their issues. Jacklin suggested next year’s local elections as a good time to seek support for the pledge.
 
A motion was made to consider using the pledge in the 2015 municipal elections, contacting the nonprofits about advocating for the pledge and distributing a news release about the results of this first round with the pledge, including the news that the governor signed it. The motion was unanimously approved.
 
Legislative agenda: There was discussion of how to respond to the Supreme Court decision against FOIC which said current state law requires local and state police to release only basic information on arrests, pending the completion of a prosecution. The ruling said it’s up to the legislature to decide whether the law should be changed.
 
There was agreement that a strategy in response to the ruling must be developed. Also on the 2015 legislative agenda will be our continuing efforts to make historical records, such as Civil War medical records, public documents.
 
Looking ahead: The next CCFOI meeting will be Dec. 17 at noon at Wood-N-Tap.

    Perhaps you could write nnext articles referring too this article.
    I desire tto read mopre things about it!

    Here iss my homepage; Rexona clinic

  106. I’m just commenting to let you be aware of of the extraordinary discovery my cousin’s daughter enjoyed going through your site. She discovered lots of issues, most notably how it is like to have a very effective giving mindset to have many others just gain knowledge of certain extremely tough matters. You really did more than our desires. Many thanks for distributing the important, healthy, educational and as well as easy thoughts on the topic to Gloria.

  107. I think what you published made a bunch of sense. However, what about this?

    what if you added a little content? I am not suggesting your content
    isn’t solid., however what if you added something that makes people want more?
    I mean CCFOI Meeting Minutes – November 19, 2014 – Connecticut Council
    on Freedeom of Information is a little boring. You should glance at Yahoo’s home
    page and note how they create article headlines to grab people to click.
    You might try adding a video or a related pic or two
    to grab people interested about everything’ve got
    to say. In my opinion, it would bring your blog a little bit
    more interesting.

  108. Thanks for the suggestions about credit repair on this particular web-site. The things i would offer as advice to people is usually to give up this mentality that they buy at this point and fork out later. Being a society most of us tend to make this happen for many factors. This includes trips, furniture, in addition to items we’d like. However, it is advisable to separate one’s wants from the needs. As long as you’re working to raise your credit ranking score actually you need some trade-offs. For example you may shop online to economize or you can check out second hand outlets instead of high priced department stores intended for clothing.

  109. Thank you for another wonderful post. The place
    else may anyone gett that kind of info in such an ideal method
    of writing? I’ve a presentaion next week, and I am at
    the look for such information.
