Sullivan files a Second Ethics Complaint Against the Natchez Board of Aldermen

As reported below, I filed an ethics complaint to the Mississippi Ethics Commission against the Board of Aldermen of Natchez, Mississippi in April 2018 based on the Board's violation of the Mississippi Open Meetings Act.  Amazingly, the Board of Aldermen went back into executive, secret session again on May 1, 2018, only days after both I and the Natchez Democrat filed ethics complaints based upon an earlier violation of the Mississippi Open Meetings Act. Once again, the Aldermen met in secret to discuss which garbage collection company would be awarded a garbage collection contract worth millions of dollars. Today, May 2, 2018, I filed a second Open Meetings Act violation complaint with the Mississippi Ethics Commission, asking the Commission to rule that the Board violated the law by excluding the public from its deliberations. If you have questions, comments or information about an Open Meeting Act violation , please contact me.
