I chair the New Jersey Libertarian Party’s Open Government Advocacy Project. The Project’s goal is to encourage local governments around New Jersey to fully comply with the Open Public Records Act, Sen. Byron M. Baer Open Public Meetings Act and other laws that foster open and transparent government.

Today, I wrote to Mayor George Conard and the Riverside Township Committee asking if they will: a) more precisely describe the topics that the Township Committee discussed in executive session, and b) make draft copies of the Committee’s executive session meeting minutes more promptly available to the public. My letter (and the Township Committee’s August 18, 2008 and September 15, 2008) executive meeting minutes) are online here.
