So.....what are CT citizens going to do about this travesty? What can they do?

well, I don't see that they posted their agenda on our SOS website as required by CGS Sec. 1-225 .... so I'll file a complaint and ask that the vote be null and void.

Others should too ! (but they won't)

Well, yesterday the state computers were down for hours preventing anyone from purchasing a gun. I waited around for about 1.5 hrs before giving up and leaving empty handed. Perhaps a few dollars to keep their stuff running isn't a bad thing.

filed complaint -- to Freedom of information commission - anyone else?

Ref: Complaint of open meeting violation of State Bond Commission Meeting of 3-28-14
AND
Request for priority assignment of case

Dear FIC,

This complaint is in respect to the State Bond Commission, a state agency born of CGS Sec. 3-20, contact information of:

Address:
State Bond Commission
450 Capitol Avenue
Hartford, CT 06106-1379, USA
Telephone
General Information: 860-418-6200
Toll Free: (Within Connecticut): 1-800-286-2214
TDD: (Telecommunications Device for the Deaf): 860-418-6456
FAX: 860-418-6487
Chairman: Governor Malloy

The Bond Commission held a meeting on 3-28-14, first page of the meeting minutes attached, without posting notice of the meeting on the Connecticut Secretary of State’s Website as required by CGS Sec. 1-225.

This is a violation of the Act and relief should include the finding of violations of the Act and a null and voiding of the votes taken at the 3-28-14 meeting.

Since this Bond Commission authorizes bonds to be issued, as noted in the meeting minutes, the FIC should hear this case on a priority basis as the bonds would be issued if heard in a non-expedited manner. Millions of dollars are at stake.
