One response to “What is driving Gayle Corrigan’s scorched earth strategy in East Greenwich?”

  1. Deforest

    It’s arguable that the “notice” fails RI legal requirements under the open meetings act. The law requires the notice contain “a statement specifying the nature of the business to be discussed”. Members of the public have no idea of what the comprehensive set of things are that comprise “all actions taken by Gayle Corrigan as Town Manager from July 1, 2017 – November 14, 2017.” I’d bet even the EG Town Council members couldn’t list everything.

    Further, the court order separately ruled that firefighter Jim Perry was unlawfully terminated and the court reinstated his job. But ratifying “all actions” of Corrigan includes Corrigan’s action to fire Perry — so wouldn’t that in itself render the ratification illegal?

    Food for thought.
