MDOT’s Hall says counterparts broke meetings law


Published: September 10,2009


JACKSON — Transportation Commissioner Dick Hall says his counterparts broke Mississippi’s open meetings law.

Hall has filed a complaint with the Mississippi Ethics Commission.

Hall has often feuded with Northern District Commissioner Bill Minor, Southern District Commissioner Wayne Brown and Mississippi Department of Transportation Director Butch Brown. The Browns are not related.

Hall, who represents the central district, says the others met at a Jackson restaurant Aug. 10 with Madison County officials to discuss an Interstate 55 interchange.

Tom Hood, executive director of the Ethics Commission, said the two commissioners and Butch Brown have 14 days to file a response if they choose.
