"On Monday night SMFCSD Board went in to an executive meeting of which I had no prior knowledge," Armstrong wrote in a statement, according to the Stow Sentry. "I soon realized that this was an illegal meeting which should have been under the guideline of [Ohio Revised Code] 121.22 (g) (1). At that time I left the meeting."
The board voted to go into an executive session for the "discipline of a public employee or official."
"Mrs. Wright's motion correctly cited a valid basis for the executive session from among the matters listed and set forth in the Sunshine Law executive session provision," board president Karen Powers wrote in an email to the Stow Sentry about the incident. "A Board member may move to enter into executive session at any time and there is no advance notice requirement found in the Sunshine Law."
The board meeting, as taped by a Stow resident and added to YouTube, is attached to this post.
