The Delaware Governor’s Advisory Council for Exceptional Citizens (GACEC) website appears to be in severe disarray. The last agenda for one of their meetings is for their March 17th, 2015 meeting. The last minutes are from their June 2015 meeting. When does this group meet? On the Delaware Public Meetings Calendar it shows their last meeting was November 17th, 2015. No agenda was on the calendar either. Are they even meeting anymore?
I used to get emails from this group when I was on their distribution list. But once I blasted them for their opposition of the parent opt-out legislation, House Bill 50, I was banned from this email list. My guess, this is now an “inclusive club” in Delaware that doesn’t have to follow state law for public meetings or transparency. As a group that is supposed to represent the disabled of Delaware, this is very disheartening to see. I expect more out of any state agency or council, but I expect much more out of this group. Is Wendy Strauss still the Executive Director? Is Robert Overmiller still the Chair of GACEC? When are their meetings? They do have a calendar of their meetings for the year, but that isn’t saying much without the other necessary state law compliance in effect.
Why does this group think they don’t have to be visible with their activities?
