Editor,

Currently, the Ocean City Council is negotiating a union contract on salaries/benefits/schedules/working conditions. Typically, these contract meetings are held in closed sessions.

The city government general employee’s salaries/benefits/working conditions are discussed in the public domain, usually during budget hearings.

The question is: why conceal from the public the union discussions when the same issues concerning the general employees are discussed in open session?

The elected officials should avoid close sessions unless it is absolutely necessary. After all, keeping the public informed is the idea.

Retired Councilmember but still a taxpayer,

Margaret Pillas
