Brooks details his part in OMA violation

On August 19, 2010, the APS District and Community Relations Committee held a meeting.  The meeting was held at Eldorado High School, link.

It was a "public meeting" as is meant in the New Mexico Open Meetings Act, link, (compliance guide) which reads in significant part;

All meetings of any public body except the legislature and the courts shall be public meetings, and all persons desiring shall be permitted to attend and listen to the deliberations and proceedings.
During his sworn testimony, APS Supt Winston Brooks testified that the reason he denied me entrance was that meeting was
"by invitation only"
and further that; he
"had enough to do with (creating) it (the list) to know that I wasn't on it.
Brooks has admitted under oath, he was part of a deliberate decision to violate the Open Meetings Act.

But OMA violations are nothing new for the leadership of the APS.

Nor is the establishment media's relentless refusal to investigate and report upon them.
