Conservative Writer Lambasts Council on Town Manager Fiasco

Justin Katz, a prominent conservative writer for Anchor Rising and the Ocean State Currant, blasted members of the Tiverton Town Council for their responses to members of the public at a recent Town Council meeting.

During the public comment portion of the meeting, residents took turns expressing "their displeasure with the way the council let an incompetent town administrator. . .ease into retirement and let an employee who was filmed apparently stealing time and resources from the town. . .ease into his own lucrative retirement," Katz wrote.

Several council members responded to the public admonishment by saying they inherited the problem and handled it as best they could.

Katz took issue with the council's explanation that they "had no good options" when it came to the fate of the former manager and employee.

"And thus, a council stocked with a majority that has been involved in negotiating contracts and newer members who gained their seat with strong support from town employees complains that the system that they and their allies and friends have set up ties their hands," Katz wrote.
