I read the article “FAMU VP seeks to limit media access to Faculty Senate meetings” (Feb. 27) with particular interest. I teach at the FAMU College of Law, but I am not writing this opinion in an official capacity. I am writing it as a public citizen of my home state of Florida on a matter of public interest.
As reporter Byron Dobson noted in the article, Barbara Petersen, president of the First Amendment Foundation, is an expert. She stated: “FAMU is a public university supported by our tax dollars, and we have a right to know what recommendations are being made by the Faculty Senate and why.” I agree with her assertion.
