Public officials that are found guilty of violating FOIA laws should be removed from office upon conviction. That’s how you stop this crap.
….”the community would be better served if Roundtree would” not be re-elected in the next election. Roundtree came into office with a record of not following department policies and procedures concerning control of evidence and records, plus his spoofed email debacle. His rapport with his subordinates and transparency with the public and media are lacking. It’s not public service; it’s power, turf, and control.
Oh, the stories I have from his RCBOE days. He doesn’t like following or ENFORCING laws either.
