Absence of Ethics, Incompetent Legal Counsel, or both? To many the requirements of the Brown Act are seen as a nuisance, rather than a responsibility; an annoyance, rather than an opportunity for accountability. Such is the case it seems with the Garden Grove Unified School District Trustees.
The fact that we are entering a period of limited government hopefully does not mean we are entering a period of limited oversight of governance. The recent walkout by Garden Grove Unified School District Trustee KimOanh Nguyen Lam over an alleged violation of the Brown Act by her fellow board members is a strong case in point.
Yesterday I wrote about the letter I sent to the Garden Grove Unified School District Board of Trustees regarding a violation of the Brown Act. At that time the audio for the January 5th meeting had not been posted. There is definitely more impact when you hear the voices as opposed to reading the transcripts of these meetings. So much so, I took the time to combinethe audio with pictures of the people speaking to make it clear who said what.
