I got a call from a school board member recently asking what to do when her board goes into executive session and then talks about things that cannot legally be discussed there.
“Can I speak out about this without being sanctioned?” she asked.
My response to her was two-fold. Of course she can speak out - and in fact, I think she has an obligation to do so. Public officials do not give up their First Amendment right to free speech when they take office. And a board or council cannot legally sanction a member who does speak out - only the voters can do that.
