To the Editor:

Let me see if I have this right. The City of Green pays $10,000 for a legal opinion to address the implementation of a charter amendment that Green residents voted on and adopted in November 2018. The legal opinion was shared with members of City Council and the Charter Review Commission. Yet, when members of the public and the press requested a copy, the current law director said it was confidential and could not be shared with the public - even though Green residents have an absolute right to know what their vote last November actually meant.

And, the legal opinion is being withheld by a law director who has served in his position for one year without being appointed in accordance with the Green Charter. Something does not seem right here.

But then again, what do I know.
