City Council President Marc Laredo released this memo today regarding an anonymous complaint filed following a May 20 gathering of 11 female Newton City Councilors who say they met to discuss the speak about “the appropriateness of the way women were being treated” by their colleagues.

At my request, the Law Department looked into the anonymous complaint the City
Clerk received on Thursday, June 7, 2018 alleging that the Open Meeting Law was violated when 11 members of the City Council met on May 20, 2018. The Law Department interviewed all members of the City Council who were invited to the meeting and has concluded that the Open Meeting Law was not violated.
