brown act

Dawn Rowe may be out as San Bernardino County Third District Supervisor after a superior court judge ruled that her appointment violated the Brown Act. 

A San Bernardino Superior Court judge ruled yesterday that the Board of Supervisors violated the Brown Act, which guarantees the public’s right to attend and participate in meetings of local legislative bodies, when they chose Rowe for the Third District seat.

The judge’s ruling concludes that Rowe’s appointment is null and void and that a new appointment will be made by Governor Gavin Newsom.
