Citizens' Brown Act Violation Fund established

I will gladly pledge $1000 to a Brown Act violation fund - anyone else prepared to contribute?
Mr. Carpenter, I'm in for a grand. It would be nice to see some Menlo Park citizens take an interest in their own town's corruption.
OK, we now have $2k of seed money for a Citizens Brown Act Violation Fund to be used to put pressure on our local governments and our elected officials to 'cure and correct' their Brown Act violations and, more important, to encourage our local governments and our elected officials to begin adhering to both the spirit and the letter of the Brown Act.
Hopefully others will join in with pledges and a public spirited lawyer conversant in the Brown Act will agree to serve as our legal representative. The mere existence of a significant Fund and a skillful attorney will probably encourage some change in behavior.
