OM 13-25 Block v. Board of Elections - Violation

The Complainant filed an OMA complaint alleging that the Board had provided improper notice of the legislative bills to be discussed during its March 11, 2013 meeting. Because the Complainant had received prior copies of the bills, and assumed that these bills would be discussed at the March 11, 2013 meeting, the Complainant failed to demonstrate that he was aggrieved by the allegation of insufficient notice. Independent of the above, the Complainant attended the March 11, 2013 meeting and failed to demonstrate that he was aggrieved. The Board did violate the OMA when it failed to post "official and/or approved" minutes of its March 11, 2013 meeting on the Secretary of State's website within thirty-five (35) days of its meeting as required by R.I. Gen. Laws 42-46-7(d).
