A Danville resident questioned the motives of Citizens for Good Government Monday at the City Commission meeting, saying that the group does not represent him and is the source of rumors around town.
Jack Carey's concerns were not addressed by any commissioners, and all five declined to comment after he spoke.
However, the city attorney provided more information about an executive session at the end of the meeting in what appeared to be a response to the group's requests of commissioners.
Carey said he thought the group is mostly newcomers and is trying to "tell us how to run our town."
He wanted to know if the group had any Democrats, if it has a hidden agenda or political aspirations. Three members of the group have filed for election to the commission.
Two weeks ago, the CCG read a letter to commissioners about executive sessions. It said they believed that just using topic names like "property acquisition," "personnel" or "litigation" did not comply with the state open meetings law.
