Selectman Peter Cunningham has filed a Massachusetts Public Information Request for all emails, both personal and related to town business, between fellow Selectman Jack Petropoulos and Art Campbell, Editor of The Groton Line.
Groton selectmen voted unanimously at their December 15 meeting to resolve an Open Meeting Law complaint filed against them by The Groton Line by releasing all of Town Manager Mark Haddad’s performance reviews and documents from which the performance reviews were compiled for the past six years.
I joined the Board of Selectman nearly 8 years ago. I joined to help the Town succeed and prosper, and I think the record has been good. There have been contentious issues. I’ve listened, and exercised my judgment.
The report from the “Strong Chief” employee termination hearing of three call firefighters who lost their jobs this spring landed on the desk of Fire Chief’ Steele McCurdy and other town officials Monday.
The Groton Board of Selectmen’s annual performance reviews of Town Manager Mark Haddad probably violated the Massachusetts Open Meeting Law (OML) for at least four of the six years Haddad has served as the town’s first town manager.
Last week, the Town of Groton rehired three of the four call firefighters it terminated this spring, immediately placed them on administrative leave, and summoned them to a “Strong Chief Law” employee termination hearing.
