"Legally, the Open Meetings Law allows members of one party to meet behind closed doors to discuss matters of public policy." then why do they keep calling it a caucus and why are they meeting at City Hall and not at the Blue Ribbon like they used to do?....Talk about arrogance..and misuse of public funding for their own uses..
