“How long till the next RFP for town counsel goes out?”
The question was asked in July 2012. The public has the answer…2014.
The next question is “WHY?”. Did Gelerman & Cabral not do something right, did they fumble one ball too many for the BOS Chaiman, did they not follow marching orders they thought were illegal or not right, did they cost too much in negotiating time versus litigating in the towns best interest? What are all the reasons this was brought up? Why can the Chairman add this to an agenda with no forewarning and no specifics?
Other boards have often used outside counsel for some issues- Selectmen too; one member said two other boards have sought outside counsel yet she refused to name those boards. She claimed Gelerman & Cabral were too accommodating (non-litigious) but didn’t tell what other matter G&C had let her down about…was it the 2 OML violations?
Why does it look of the selectmen on the board in 2012, Devellis is the only one that does his homework, remembers their actions and holds it up for the public to see?
