Cheers and jeers

CHEERS - To transparency. All it took were five members of the Gloversville Enlarged School District Board of Education to just say no to an executive session. At Monday's meeting, a motion was made to go into closed executive session to discuss a matter involving board members' efforts to oust the board president. But when the vote was taken, the motion failed, and the meeting continued in public session, as it should. An executive session would have made it easy for members and school administrators to talk about issues that shouldn't be discussed behind closed doors. We congratulate the board members who prevented a cone of silence and discussed the issue in the open so members of the public could see what's going on with their school board.
