MRJ on web video

Today, the MRJ ran an article on the possibility of adding meeting video to the town website. The article's not online, but I am confused about one of the concerns being raised.

I've been told the Ordinance Review Committee is going to review this for privacy concerns. Frankly, I have no idea why that's an issue. I mean... how is it ok for the Town to videotape people and broadcast their words and images on the TV, but not on the internet? But perhaps more analogous... CT-N is available "on demand" over the tubes. And CSpan is available on the web. But we need to study this? Seems like overkill to me.

As Phil Knight likes to say, "just do it!"

First they broadcast our meetings on cable. Now they want to put us on the internet. They're already digging deeper into my presidential candidate's associations. Next they'll investigate my family's financial interest in turf. Where does all this "transparency" end ?!

If you have done nothing wrong, what's the problem?

Ned Bowman resigns as the state's investment chief.

See the 3/22/2007 NHR article by Lou Turmelle.

According to the article, Ned was a major contributor to Rell's campaign. Attorney Blumenthal identified Ned as a person of interest in the investigation of the demise of F&S oil.
