CHEYENNE, Wyo. — Superintendent of Public Instruction Cindy Hill has expressed concern about a possible open meetings violation by the State Building Commission.

The five statewide elected officials, including the governor and the superintendent, are members of the board.

Hill said a Laramie charter school official improperly sat in on an executive session in October.

Hill said the person is a client of state Sen. Phil Nicholas, an ex-officio member of the commission and a practicing attorney.

She said the person shouldn't have attended the session or the session should have been open to the public.

Nicholas said it was an unintentional mistake.

Gov. Matt Mead, who chairs the commission, said the commission needs to exercise more caution when it goes into executive session. The attorney general determined that no open-meeting violation occurred.
