FOI COMMISSION DECIDES UNANIMOUSLY AGAINST DR. ADAMOWSKI AND HARTFORD SCHOOLS, UPHOLDS FINES
More on this later, but the Connecticut Freedom of Information Commission decided unanimously in my favor today regarding an FOI violation committed by the Hartford Schools and Dr. Adamowski. In an unusual act, the Commission also levied a fine against the person they deemed responsible for withholding the documents, Jill Cutler-Hodgman, a Hartford Schools staff person.
The documents requested included Dr. Adamowski's employment agreements, his personnel records, any documentation of payments for housing/living expenses and a record of all of Dr. Adamowski's City issued credit card expenses. The request was not complied with fully until the day before the FOI hearing in July, almost 5 months after the documents were requested, and even then they didn't provide everything requested.
More will be posted on this later.
