Video: Bristol chairman silences a citizen

When Bristol Planning Commission Vice-Chair Chico Martin refused to accept public comments from John “Slim” Pickens — the only citizen in attendance at the commission’s Nov. 15, meeting — Martin may have violated state law, according to Secretary of State Jim Condos and his deputy Brian Leven.
Condos pointed to a section of Vermont’s Open Meeting Law, which states: “At an open meeting, the public shall be given a reasonable opportunity to express its opinion on matters considered by the public body during the meeting, as long as order is maintained. Public comment shall be subject to reasonable rules established by the chairperson.”
