Public spokesman hired: In non-public session, of course
First and foremost, the school board and its new superintendent have not made a convincing case, or much of a case at all, for hiring a public spokesman, a "cheerleader'' for the schools, as proponents have put it.
As for these positions being filled behind closed doors, we think that Mayor Ted Gatsas and new school board boss Dave Wihby ought to look at the spirit as well as the letter of the public's Right to Know Law. Its "personnel'' exception was intended to protect the rights of employees in disciplinary and investigative situations.
