From New Hamsphire School Boards Association (NHSBA) Director Ted Comstock, Esq., I seek a response regarding this quasi-governmental body's recommended speech policy for school board meetings, which is viewpoint and content-based in its restrictions. I gave the policy a failing grade, and he promised a response within that timeframe and I lauded him for that; Nashua Alderman Fred Teeboom and I have already prevailed on a similar matter here in Nashua, as seen in the marquee thumbnails below.
Here's the connection: Attorney Ayotte has said she is giving the NHSBA matter "careful consideration" for inclusion in the next Right-to-Know Law revision or addendum because
"For our government to remain of the people, by the people, and for the people, while protecting individuals' privacy, it is essential that the people have reasonable and open access to the information that will inform the people what their government is up to and how it is performing.
Government, therefore, should be open, accessible, accountable and responsive. To that end, the public's right of access to governmental proceedings and records shall not be unreasonably restricted."
So that in turn is what I'm screaming about relative to the police video and Officer McKay's car computer information, because as the Monitor points out, the privacy rights of Liko Kenney and Bruce McKay expired with their natural lives in the face of such a public issue. And as noted herein, his personnel file has apparently been sealed for a coupla' years, too. It is a small World, after all.
