In the past, Middleboro has violated the OPEN MEETING LAW - there is no excuse and we're not going to split the fine hairs to justify Mr. Frawley's interpretation of the statute to call a 'MEETING' and EXCLUDE OTHERS.
Life is simple!
When in doubt...POST THE PUBLIC MEETING!
Those present at the 'MEETING' are each aware of the statute....there is simply no excuse...no sputtering....no consideration or justification.
It has long been conspicuous that Mr. Frawley is incapable of acting professionally at times.
It has long been conspicuous that Mr. Frawley is pigheaded and defiant, frequently misunderstanding the law. [For instance, counting vehicles on the property of a used car dealer and much else.]
It is known that others not involved or public have been fanning the flames of petty gossip, venom and dissension, maybe scheming for their own childish ends.
That needs to cease as well!
It's time to behave like ADULTS!
The MEETING should have been PUBLIC, POSTED and TELEVISED with all invited to attend, not merely a select few.
Folks, You are managing a TOWN, not a kindergarten!
Please behave as such....Mr. Frawley!
