The Tri-City Healthcare District board has been accused of violating the Brown Act, California’s open meeting law, by holding a closed door session on strategic directions for the district before convening again in closed session to evaluate the performance of their CEO.
Critics said the session on setting strategic directions should have been on an agenda and open to the public. An attorney for the district said the board could evaluate personnel on goals and objectives that do not have to be public records. -db
