Free to Stream

At the Monday, May 20, Board of Education meeting, resident Brian Bradley stated that he and fellow resident Mike Ramer were well within their rights to record the meeting. Ramer had been questioned about filming a student at the previous meeting. Business administrator Steven Robinson agreed that, yes, everyone is legally permitted to record a public meeting. We would have liked him to stop there, but he continued, adding that recording is, however, discouraged by the administration.

But make no mistake: at a public meeting, recording is very much allowed. These laws exist for a reason – open government is good government.

Whose Responsibility Is It?

At the Township Council conference meeting, held on Wednesday, May 22, there were two extended discussions about perceived improvements needed in the community. In one, the Council agreed to discuss with the Board of Education how to provide theater space for the performers in our town and in the other, they avoided the question of how to deal with plastic bags.

Retired art teacher Hugh Mahon made a valid point when he said that the town provides ample space for the many young (and not-so-young) athletes, but not one inch of space is offered to the many performers and artists. Fewer athletes from Livingston have been recognized nationally for their abilities than performers, he said, pointing out the accomplishments of Jay Greenspan (AKA Jason Alexander), Nikki James, Stephen Oremus, and others.
