Shutting off the public
James Gray's honesty is commendable. But given the importance of both matters, the freeholders should have reopened the public portion before voting on the two add-on resolutions. They had to know the politically charged nature of each matter. By not having them on the agenda, the public didn't know to comment on them. It all seems underhanded. The freeholders, who campaign on newfound government openness, should know better.
