AIKEN STANDARD, 12 OCTOBER 2016, FEAT. PROF. JAY BENDER:
It’s become a little easier for members of the public to have their voices heard during school board meetings.
At its September board meeting, Williston Public Schools 29 in Barnwell County voted to trim the notice residents must give before speaking in public participation from three days to one.
The Williston 29 vote comes following a three-month effort by the Aiken Standard, which has pressed for the board to conduct meetings with greater transparency.
