Newspaper files open meeting complaint against Burlington City Council - Seven Days

"In the filing sent to city officials on Thursday evening, the newspaper argues that it was illegal for councilors to invite protest organizers into an executive session to discuss police personnel, specifically Sgt.

Deputy news editor Sasha Goldstein submitted the complaint on behalf of the paper."
